I don't understand the panic lately. The Consumer ELECTRONICS Show brought to light some new hardware coming to the HDDVD side which is what the show is about. They may have missed a marketing opportunity by not going nuts with an upcoming release list like BD did, but why does that matter? If they announced the titles, would they show up faster? Does J6P even know about the CES? They're the ones who are going to make this format succeed or fail.
All I'm trying to say is relax. We've all known for a long time now that this format war isn't going to end quickly. Sorry to jump off-topic.
New Line, please hurry and release Snakes on a Plane, so I can have a Snakes on a Mutha F-ing Plane Night in HD.
Announcing new players is great. However, new players do not address the present lack of titles. Even if we take CES out of the equation, how is having precious few new releases a positive thing? I am all for taking the high road and not grandstanding like the BD Group clearly did with their umpteen announcements, however, the one thing that HD had going (besides great PQ) for it was a healthy and steady supply of titles since launch. Now, new HD titles are like some endangered species. Of the 300 promised titles, what would be the harm in releasing a few, say, in January? All I know is if they don't do something soon, there may not be anyone left to buy those 300 titles to play on those cheap new players coming from China.
