If that is seriously being considered a big advantage ... then wow.

Wow, Warner chose to use a combination of flippers and DVDs for extras in the HD-DVD Ultimate set? [Cartman]Lame[/Cartman].


I guess that's why the ultimate set is only $20 (MSRP) more than the trilogy set. You'd think with an HD-DVD set they'd be all HD-DVD discs. They could've easily put all the extras on two HD-DVD discs (one 30GB and one 15GB), without the use of flippers and DVDs.


At least they give you the option to get the Trilogy by itself without flippers and DVDs. However, you lose the extras when going that route. They'll probably do the same thing with the Blu-ray version. Remember, with Warner, the Blu-ray version is only as good as it's HD-DVD version, if we're lucky.

I could care less how the discs look physically. It's a waste to spread the extras across five discs when they could've used two. I just hope with Blu-ray they'll use one 50GB disc for the extras. That'll be alot more convenient. I'm all about not having to get up if I don't have to. However, with Warner, it won't happen because of their desire to be "equal" with their other, less advanced, format.

20 GB more space means Warner can accommodate these extra stuffs making it 3 sweet discs for the trilogy. Perhaps Warner could also pump up the bit rate to hit the 35-40 Mbps mark thus overcoming the transfer defects / compression problems (if any) they had faced while authoring the HD DVD.

Its not a big deal but considering this is labeled the "Ultimate" Matrix box set and cost over $100 retail, having no art on the discs is like buying a Ferrari without the paint. Box sets are special because of all the extra attention the studios put into it. When you spend that much money, the details are important.

The matrix isn't available on Blu-ray.

I have more Blu-ray discs than HD-DVDs. Oh, but of course, that makes me a "HD-DVD fanboy". Yeah, real genius you are

Don't feel weird about this. In certain parts of the forums, people are simply more concerned about bitrate meters and disc art (not bonus features though, we don't need those!!) than the movies themselves.

I predict the Blu-ray release will only be the ultimate edition with 3 x BD-50 discs containing the movies and extras. That would be 2 advantages, artwork on the disc and not having to flip the disc to watch the extras.
