It seems to me that the smurf posse
have basically refuted every point you have made, for the most part using calm tones and reasoned arguments.
I haven't seen any examples of the hatred you say you have received - but then again it seems that insults are your strong point rather than the use of examples or facts to back up anything you have to say.
BTW, I don't own a PS3 or a 360... just so you know...
I have provided plenty of facts you and others just choose to argue that they are insignificant facts
. BD does have the deficiencies that I mentioned just as HD DVD has its own issues.
You want percentages and statistical data? Go gather the information yourself from the HD DVD software forum. I don't know what you do professionally, but I'm an engineer and not an accountant. Far more interested in the technology than with counting beans
For the record many, many HD DVD titles have advanced features with U-control or other forms of IME.
F&F Tokyo Drift
Children of Men
Freedom Vol I
And many many MANY
others (those were just the ones that popped into my head in the first thirty seconds).
Some of the most anticipated HD DVD releases coming out such as '300', 'Heroes Season 1' and 'Star Trek Original Series' are going to release with advanced features that currently can't be done on BD.
If these features are meaningless to you then don't buy the software
but please stop being dismissive of these capabilities as worthless
. The studious obviously feel that it's a big deal to include such features and I wonder why, maybe it's because some of the studios have figured out that AQ/PQ alone won't convert regular consumers to HDM.
What about the ability to download a language pack or related titles list for a feature to your HDM player?
What about the ability to download special features that are later added to a feature?
Or book mark your favorite scenes and send them to a friend?
These are all features that HD DVD can do today that seem absent on BD. While many BD proponents at AVS only care about the feature and constantly claim bitrate trumps all
it would seem that certain highly paid studio executives disagree with them on this subject.
HDM will never replace the DVD base based solely on AQ/PQ differences that many consumers consider "marginal". HDM will replace DVD if it offers a DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE THAN DVD DOES
BD today is effectively DVD+. It's DVD with 1080P support and high bitrates. Great for afficienados but not necessarily any more sustainable than Laser Disc
And by the way, I don't know what your problem is but you really don't need to take 10 posts to reply to a single post.
