not sure what the service is like, but the thing on HD-DVD and black hawk down on blu-ray for £20.98 suits me fine!

thanks!
#2
Very good deal - Thanks!
#3
Great spot martyngates :) any help with cheap HD in the UK is a bonus!

A good one I have spotted is Mission Impossible boxset (1-3) £30 and just number 3 is £30 in store at HMV!!

Another tip is that HD-DVD is region free and with there being $2=£1 you can get most for about £11 from dvdplanet
#4
Another shop I've bought quite a few from is Betam Online:
http://www.betamonline.com/HD-DVD-c-3729.html

which works out real cheap, I got batman begins for £11.99 inc postage! :)

Dont be such a c**k and come out with BULLs**t statements!

Bring evidnece to the table to support your argument, and then perhaps people will listen.

how about blockbuster not stocking any hd-dvds discs only blu-ray, any virgin or hmv who have a few hd-dvd discs but loads of blu-ray, australia not stocking any hd-dvd discs, sony owning the cheapest blu-ray player and the worlds biggest film studios and film archives.
a microsoft director saying we will produce a blu-ray add on for the x-box shortly...
yeh hd-dvd will win . . . not.
p.s. if you want any cheap hd-dvd or blu-ray discs cant do better than asda for prices average about £15 - £17

Look on play or any other sites for future releases for hddvd and compare it to blu ray -- hd dvd has about 9 blu ray about 30
Play.com
Hd future release :http://www.play.com/DVD/HD%20DVD/6-/ComingSoon.html
Blu ray: http://www.play.com/DVD/Blu-ray/6-/ComingSoon.html

Hmv.co.uk

But look at the hd dvd case http://uk.gizmodo.com/HD-DVD_boxes-thumb.jpg

It is true microsoft did say that they would make a blu ray add on -- why do you think they havent put it in the consoe -- because they arent sure of the format

Yeh hd dvd have a few films i wouldnt mind in high def e.g lord of the rings - matrix - apollo 13

Blu ray is outselling hddvd like 2:1 so

Look at the blu ray case i mean yummy

Plus you cant stack hd dvd cases as theyve got a little bump at the top


Is that enough of an arguement

This isn't a discussion about which format is better. As an owner of both they're just as good as each other, both have their advantages and disadvantages and all it'll come down to is the installed user-base. Nothing more, nothing less.

To start with the blue ray for 360 is bs, it was made up from a couple of four month old interviews then claimed to be news, ms cleared it up this week.

Warner, Universal, Filmax to name a few all release on HD-DVD and BD. LG and Samsung are making dual format players that do both HD-DVD and DB

Take a look at dvdtimes.co.uk in the HD section.
#14
They said that and then thought crap and then covered their asses by saying they have no plans to release a new player

Anyways to use the hd dvd on the 360 you will need an xbox 360 core £150 plus the player £250

If you wanted the premium thats £250 + hd dvd = £350 and you can get a ps3 for £305

But then the ps3 has extra things like wifi adaptor inside - memory card slots etc and its like quiet
#15
The HD-DVD adapter works on PCs as well, and you can buy standalone HD-DVD player for around £220.

The sensible choice is to buy neither and wait for price drops.

The HDD for 360 can be found as cheap as £45 not £100. And the cases are identical, just one is red and one is blue.

Finally a man who speaks some sense!

The peter moore interview about the blueray drive was BS!

To say a format will be dead in 12 months is, utter nonsense, there is no evidence to support this, mark my words, hddvd WILL still be around next year, as WELL as blue-ray!
#18
I think you'll find dandoc2 doesn't know ****. Seriously - £250 for a HD-DVD player addon for the Xbox 360? COME ON. You can get them new for £100.

Beside, the MS supporting bluray thing WAS bs. It was confirmed bs by the highest dudes at MS. I love sony fanbois!

dandoc2 desperately tries to justify his PS3 purchase to himself....

Yeah, I think if had wasted my money on a PS3 i'd be buying alot of Blu ray films as the game are pretty dull!

Yes you cant use the hd dvd add on without a 360 so that will cost £250 ! durr

I havent got a ps3

hang on, they're £15.99 normally and with £10 off they're £21.98? bit confused here...

I walked into HMV and got tokyo drift for £17, so is that better?

(oh, and 'm not getting into the which is better debate, but one will win out because the case is blue? erm.....)

£15.99 x 2 = £31.98 (The magic number for £10 off via Google Checkout is £30 minimum spend)

£31.98 - £10 = £21.98
£21.98/2 = £10.99 each or £5 saved per HD-DVD/Blu-Ray....

Here ends the math lessons :thumbsup:

The amount of people buying HD movies in stores is neglible the reason stores stock these is because sony sends them along with ps3s and not because they have chosen to.

The cheapest stand alone HD DVD player is £260 whereas the cheapest blueray is £500.

Your arguments are so weak and made up of misinformation I almost don't want to waste my time replying but I fear other people will read it and take it was truth.

wow good argument you clearly know your stuff what next you will tell me the texture on the top of blu-ray discs are so smooth and this is why they should win. I couldn't even be bothered to make a point by point breakdown of why you are wrong but I think I quoted the strongest point you made heh.

In any case it will be at least a year before we start to see a winner.

Also as of the 18th Microsoft refuted any claims they were going to make a blu ray addon and confirmed once more their full support for HD DVD as did Universal a few days prior to this.

simple maths bluray holds 80% more information,case closed.lets not let the weaker format win again for gods sakes.also now that blue diodes are massed produced prices will fall.also some companies are bringing out dual format.i remember internal x1 dvd burners costing 200+ when they first came out

I agree on paper blu-ray is the stronger format.........but so was betamax,

This fact will not dictate who the winner is.

simple maths bluray holds 80% more information,


60% more (50 vs 30). It's not really an issue though - Bluray only needed that sort of space because they used MPEG2 for a while. Now with AVC/h264 or VC1, there's very few movies that need >30GB.

The point of transparency (ie when you can't see the difference from the original to the compressed copy) is around 15-20mbit. Take a 2hour film at 20mbit, add on interactive stuff @3mbit, lossless audio 3mbit, several extra DD5.1 audio tracks/subtitles 2mbit, that's 28/8 * 120 *60 = 25GB. That's an extreme example too, most HDDVD discs work out at 20GB or so. The rest is filled with pointless making-of extras and the like.

The only real scenario for benefit is with insanely long movies - eg the LOTR movies will be tricky. To fit 3.5 hours, you only have 19mbit to work with. Subtract 3mbit for lossless audio, and another 1mbit for spare audio/subs, and no interactive stuff, leaves 15mbit for video. That's perfectly enough - Batman Begins, which is pretty much the best quality HDDVD ever made, averages 11mbit. It just takes more care for them to encode well that low - normally it's more automated so you end up with 15+.

Yes, Bluray has more capacity, and bandwidth. However, the only real use for that is not increasing main movie quality, but on interactive/extras.
banned#31
Movie wise blu ray needs that much more space because it is inefficiently encoded on the disc, I think once you can buy blu ray drives and install them in your PC (which you can do already with both formats) then this is will be an advantage in that case for backing up work

Well i own both and can say the 360 HD-DVD is alot better quality than the PS3, albeit a bit nosier which can get annoying

i think there will be no winner until the format wars hit the mainstream which they havent really yet, especially in the UK. Regardless of storage and quality it will come down to which ever happens to be more popular and having the already established DVD brand will give HD-DVD the edge when people who aren't techys are in currys trying to pick a player.

Sony are definatley pushing it alot more at the moment hence you see blu-ray in most shops now but not HD-DVD, plus better titles are out on UK blu-ray whereas in the states theres loadsa great HD-DVD titles out that we dont seem to be getting here.

But theres arguments for both, but at the end of the day it comes down to popularity, price and how stubborn the studios are, it already sounds like blu-ray supporting Disney will be be backing down. But if the studios don't back down then the only option will be to love both formats!

"Your arguments are so weak and made up of misinformation I almost don't want to waste my time replying but I fear other people will read it and take it was truth" - proximo

so im lying about standing in virgin, hmv and blockbuster and seeing with my own eyes the difference between stock.....
im lying about sony owning the biggest film library and the biggest film company..
im lying when i say i have seen this then am i?
Peter Moore (microsoft entertainment division) suggested that offering a Blu-ray drive for the 360 would give consumers a choice of which high-def DVD format they'd prefer to go with, but if it goes ahead, it's a move that could be seen as major detraction from the HD DVD cause.

im lying when i see these official figures am i?
832,530 pre-recorded BDs were sold to consumers during the first three months of 2007. Punters bought only 359,300 HD DVDs

i have forgotten more about home cinema then you will ever know, i get my facts right before i say anything.

I dont mind either formats but blu ray will probably win --- its outselling hd-dvd and with hd dvd being a smaller capacity disc than blu ray then ats falling on its own sword

Capacity isn't everything. Having a PCM soundtrack and MPEG2 video requires the greater capacity but using the VC-1 codec and Dolby TrueHD, you don't need all that capacity.

didnt VHS win because of the 'adult' industry? maybe we could see the same thing happen again, HD-DVDs are cheaper to produce so i doubt you'll see many 'adult' blu-ray discs?
