and there was only a difference in color contrast. the xbox was more dim and grey while the bluray enhanced the color making it slightly more enjoyable to watch.
is my blue ray player not good enough or is all this hype about blue ray just some bull. i was expecting everything on the blueray player to be better
I've been buying BD versions of many DVDs I have. Using the same player and TV (Pioneer 320 and Pioneer Elite 151, professionally calibrated) I've yet to come across a BD that didn't look better than it's DVD counterpart. In some cases the improvement is modest and in others it's huge.
Just like with DVD, BD quality will vary greatly depending on the care taken in creating the master and transfering it to BD. BD has the potential to look far better than DVD, but unfortunately studios don't always take advantage of BDs abilities.
