I refuse to buy all these gimmicks HD. Blu-ray all the way
HD-DVD hanging on by the slimmest of thread?!? Then where, exactly, is Blu-Ray? Already fallen off the thread? HD-DVD has led all along in sales, in customer satisfaction, and in PQ reviews.
This is why CES will see dual-format players. This is also why Warner is unveiling this combo disc. And it's also why Circuit City is now stocking HD-DVD players in its stores after dismissing the format for nearly a year.
Every major retailer, CE company, and most of the studios have been giving BD every opportunity in the world to blow HD-DVD away in sales by pushing Blu-Ray, giving it more exclusive support and ridiculing HD-DVD as a format. But despite these HUGE advantages, HD-DVD has continued to lead the format war by offering a better product, more consistent titles, and better prices.
Blu-Ray has been botched from the start -- software with poor PQ the norm early on, hardware delayed for months on end, 50GB discs nowhere to be seen at launch (and when finally debuted, accounting for less than 5% of titles), interactive BDj still
among the missing several months after launch, lossless audio that only one player on the market can even decode, and prices up to $1300 for players! And PS3's are now sitting on shelves in many locations (including mine) due to their ridiculous prices while the Wii devours Sony's sales.
