WORD OF WARNING !!!

Paramount dumps Sony's Blu-ray format



Viacom-owned studio opts for Toshiba's "affordable" HD-DVD technology, dumping Sony's Blu-ray discs



Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Animation have dropped support for Sony’s Blu-ray next generation DVD format in a shock move that will see the two studios exclusively use Toshiba’s rival HD-DVD system.

Paramount, which is owned by Viacom, the media giant, previously released movies in both Blu-ray and HD-DVD. Significantly, it cited HD-DVD's cheaper costs as a decisive factor behind its decision to back it.

The latest development is a blow for Sony, which has invested heavily in Blu-ray. The battle between Blu-ray and HD-DVD is widely being seen as a re-run of that in the 1970s and 1980s between Sony’s Betamax video format and VHS - a cheaper rival - a fight that Sony lost.

The move is also likely to prolong the confusion among consumers, who cannot be sure of buying a next-generation DVD system that does not become defunct after being beaten by an incompatible rival.

Analysts have consistently suggested that confusion over the formats is likely to seriously stymie demand for both Blu-ray and HD-DVD until a clear winner emerges.

Blu-ray still leads HD-DVD in terms of Hollywood support, having won the exclusive backing of five studios: Sony, Walt Disney, Twentieth Century Fox, Lions Gate Entertainment and MGM.

By contrast, before today only Universal had opted to back HD-DVD exclusively. Paramount and Warner Bros had been making films available on both formats.

However, Sony last month took another hit when it emerged that Europe’s competition watchdog had launched a fresh probe into allegations of possible market rigging in the formats war, thought to centre on exclusivity deals linked to the Blu-ray format.

The European Commission sent requests for information to “several major Hollywood studios” in the second half of June. It is searching for any hints that talks between the studios and the groups behind the formats have given rise to arrangements that could be obstacles to free competition and illegal under European law.

Today’s announcement affects the upcoming DVD release of the blockbuster Shrek the Third and all movies distributed by Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks Pictures, Paramount Vantage, Nickelodeon Movies and MTV Films, as well as movies from DreamWorks Animation, which are distributed exclusively by Paramount Home Entertainment.

Brad Grey, chairman and chief executive of Paramount Pictures, said: “Part of our vision is to aggressively extend our movies beyond the theatre and deliver the quality and features that appeal to our audience.

”He added: “I believe HD-DVD is not only the affordable high-quality choice for consumers, but also the smart choice for Paramount.”< !--[endif]-->

Blu-ray Winning In Europe November 28, 2007
Read more Blu-ray , Entertainment , Gizmodo UK , HD , HD DVD , HDTV , Movies

According to the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), movies sales have topped 1 million in Europe and that it is outselling HD DVD by a factor of 2:1.

Of course, HD DVD were crowing recently that HD DVD player owners buy almost four times more HD movies than Blu-ray player owners.

Considering Gfk sales tracking results are being used for both camps' statements you’d be forgiven for being a bit confused and thinking that maybe they are cherry picking results to make themselves look good. The BDA is adamant though that HD DVD folk have been telling porkies.

"The facts are simple: whenever the consumer has a choice, they decide overwhelmingly in favour of Blu-ray Disc," commented Frank Simonis, Chairman of the BDA European Promotions Committee. "According to Gfk, in Europe, Blu-ray Disc movie titles have outsold HD-DVD movie titles by 2 to 1 during the year to date, and by 3 to 1 since PS3's launch in March. The trend is clear: customers continue to buy more Blu-ray Disc movies than HD-DVD movies, and that is what counts. Viewing attach rates in isolation is an inaccurate and crude measure of performance."

Another few words of warning here about the S300's limitations:

Bottom line, stick to a PS3 for the time being until the problems are resolved.

Again, the important lines before anyone gets too excited.

HD-DVD will win or i'll eat my Wii :giggle:
#19
the paramount decision was nearly two months ago and its hardly news anymore, (also the fact that there were "financial incentives" which has been admitted in public by company execs before the hd-dvd brigade start slagging)
doesnt take away the facts, blu ray is starting to pull away and will ultimately win out.

just look how independant companies (not connected to any blu ray company) are disputing the "made up" sales figures for hd-dvd sales of transformers.

but as usual everytime any offer for a blu ray or hd-dvd player or disc is on here the war of words starts and will carry on until someone admits defeat.:thumbsup:

think of it this way, better two hd variants than none at all
