You are easily the most embarassing fanboy on this forum. You post online all day and you act as if its your job to defend Sony products.

In Australia Blu-Ray outsells HD-DVD 26:1.

So yeah. HD-DVD was dead before it even left the station. I've only ever seen one store stock HD-DVD movies where as even the local music stores in a country town have a few Blu-Rays laying around.

You are pathetic ZeWarrior.

Why the heck do people care about defending various formats, you do realise that BluRays and HD-DVDs output the exact same video format 4/5 of the time, they look as good as each other and so far most HD-DVDs have outrated BluRay due to their additional content.

I own both a PS3 and an Xbox360 with a HD-DVD addon, neither is better than the other.

And Opium did you know JB Hifi stores have now decided to start stocking HD-DVDs and players, I'd say the war is far from over.

It's not about the Video Quality. Blu-Ray is winning thus far and it will probably continue. Blu-Ray has more Storage. 1st Gen HD-DVD players can NOT read the triple layer disc so they can't use it. And the 6 Layer blu-ray disc ( 150GB ) seems to have gotten out of the prototype stages. Blu-Ray and HD-DVD both output native 1080p and can use Dolby Digital Surround iirc.. though. Your right it seems far from over but In the future I see blu-ray winning.

Ace:Why should I lie? At least I'm being honest here... Gamefaqs is interesting >.>

BTW here's the link to the 6 layer brd

hate this type of thread its on every forum
mad.gif

its like giving a fanboy a helping hand making threads like this.

i got both, had the 360 hd dvd addon at launch, later bought a ps3 (mainly for blu ray believe it or not) and i dont prefer any format over the other.
they both have their own exlusives, bought transformers the other day for hd dvd and spiderman 3 for blu ray a while back, cant get either of those films on the opposite format so my point is.... better to best of both worlds than to spam fanboy crap on here about which is better.

least i know if a film i want is coming out in HD, i dont have to worry about which format its coming on.

Well said, Cygor.

Please STFU and stop being such a fanboy.

And why can't they all agree on one universal format? I'd make things much easier.

Both HD DVD and Blu Ray are dead. Why would anyone want to upgrade from DVD when with HD all you get is a bit of a clearer picture and the colours are a bit brighter. DVD is here to stay for a long time yet.

well thats like saying why did anyone bother to upgrade from VHS to DVD when all you got was a clearer picture and better sound?
also its not a "bit" of a clearer picture, the difference is phenominal between a standard definition dvd and the same movie in HD.

Have you watched a movie in SD and then watched it in HD on a decent sized quality HDTV?
If not then you wouldn't understand the difference.

It's like asking why you would upgrade from VHS video to a DVD, there is only an improvment in video quality...

HD picture quality is much better than DVD, and there are $100 HD DVD players....oh, and Australia's market is tiny compared to US and UK.

150GB disks? The 4.7GB on DVD has lasted this long, and I don't think there will be a huge resolution jump in the next 3 or 4 years - 1080P will because the standard, and that's what both do. Same video, more expensive.

HD-DVD is as fast as a toy train, Blu-Ray is as fast as a freight train, but DVD is as fast as...

    If everyone was making the same amount coperation would see that and charge more for living
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Lucky you shot down that price gouging law.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    That's why gas price in California is nearly $5 a gallon because the minimum wage rate is higher in my states it's around $3 a gallon but minimum wage is lower so there is a cost to living to blame
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Per state that is
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But if everyone in the world was rich you'd pay rich prices
  • Veho @ Veho:
    So the fact the gas station attendant gets paid 1 dollar per hour more means gas that sells a few hundred gallons per hour has to cost 2 dollars per gallon more, to compensate?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It's an example their workers make more in that state so they can charge higher prices
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "We had to increase prices by $200 per hour because one guy makes $1 per hour."
  • Veho @ Veho:
    That's some 5D math that only makes sense in America.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its different prices per state because state taxes are different, Cali taxes are higher than most, its has nothing to do w min wage.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It does at the end of the day because they'd demand more and go on strike
  • Veho @ Veho:
    You admit the corporations charge more because people can afford it, not because it really costs more, right?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yes companies look at average costs of what people can afford to sale products
  • Veho @ Veho:
    And there's no competition?
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Competition in companies here are like crazy
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Sure but competition does the same if anything at lower rates because they don't have the same resources
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Usually like a 10-20% difference
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I was told the market would "self regulate".
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I still feel as if prices would've gone up in America regardless of whose in office
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Of course they would, both your parties are spineless corporate stooges.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What about companies that are nationwide. Do you think they charge in that states stores based on state economic situation. No they charge the same, but taxes per state make the price difference. (Exception maybe Alaska, Hawaii)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Once you minimize cost of living a $500 gaming console could feel like a $1,000 console to a average home
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    But even they look at data charts and mostly have contacts in other country wide offices that talk to each other to make a fair msrp
  • Veho @ Veho:
    BigOnYa, taxes are calculated at checkout in Murrika so it's easy to compare.
