I said it elsewhere. F--- patience. "Patience" is what will get this format killed deader than a graveyard. Blu-Ray is pouring new titles out left and right, and has managed to do so in less time than HD-DVD. "Would I rather have a quality release or the quantity?" One isn't proportionate to the other: while HD-DVD's PQ is often slightly better, it's not a difference-maker compared to the sheer numbers the other format offers.
Blu-Ray says "60% of our movies are crap but we have more?" You can't keep a straight face and tell me that Half-Baked, Beerfest, and The Wicker Man (this week's ENTIRE launch lineup) is quality filmmaking.
It is VERY clear that Sony has a fire under its ass as far as Blu-Ray goes. It can NOT afford to lose this format war. They're fighting like their existence depends on it, because at least a part of it does. Hell no I'll never buy a PS3, the system is a joke and the game lineup is pathetic; there's nothing they offer that the 360 won't match or surpass, and the Wii runs circles around it in terms of universal/pick-up-and-play appeal. However, I have zero qualms about buying a Blu-Ray player...once the price is reasonable.
Universal and to a lesser extent Toshiba have a totally lax attitude and don't seem to care. Hope they start to soon, because I'm not going to wait around much longer for them to do so.
I love the HD-DVD format like crazy, but this is really annoying. I guess we only hurt the ones we love, or whatever.
