WTF? when did blue-ray lose, think you may have had some funny mushrooms m8
If HD won why are microsoft making a blue-ray player for the 360 and The HD drives plumetted from £99 to £18.99 also why have HD-DVD's become so cheap. Me thinks you got it the wrong way round and wasted £200

as funny as this thread is, for all you hd-dvd suckers:

Warner Brothers have decided to go Blu Ray Exclusive later this year. They will continue to release titles on DVD and Blu Ray, with HD DVD following a short while later, upon which time they will only release DVD and Blu Ray.

As Warner were supporting both HD formats, and have chosen to go with Blu Ray, then this is likely to be very bad news to the HD DVD camp.


As part of Time Warner, it's to be expected I guess, but New Line Cinema are also going to follow Warner to full Blu Ray exclusivity.


personally prefer the vintage effect of the betamax myself :thumbsup:

hmmmmm, hang onto your money. it may be worth waiting for the new format coming

Betamax

PS3 are putting it in their machines, watch this space closely

LOL...Nice try matey...but heres the real story:
[COLOR=black][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]SONY has said it will stop making its high definition DVDs, ending a battle with rival format HD DVD over which would be the industry standard.[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=black][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Following a review of its business, SONY said it would stop production of BLU-RAY players and recorders. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]The BLU-RAY format has suffered as major US film studios backed the HD DVD format, which is being developed by electronics firm TOSHIBA and partners. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Analysts said the move would allow SONY to focus on other products. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]"It was an agonising decision for me, but I thought if we kept running this business it would have grave ramifications for the management of our company," SONY president Atsutoshi Nishida said. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]"We made a quick decision, judging that there is no way of winning the competition," he said. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Tipping point[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=black][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]SONY said the tipping point came last month when Warner Bros' followed a number of other film studios in deciding to release its movies only in the HD DVD format. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]"It shows what a highly competitive market it is. When it comes to video, it is the person with the most content that wins," Gartner analyst Paul O'Donovan said. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Warner Bros' decision means an estimated three quarters of new film releases will be available on HD DVD discs. Other major studios backing HD DVD include 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney and MGM. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Last week, Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, announced it would sell high-definition discs only in the HD DVD format at its 4,000 US stores. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]In the UK, DSGI, which owns the Currys chain, said it would stop selling BLU-RAY players after SONY's announcement. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Video rental firms Blockbusters and Netflix will also offer customers only HD DVD. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Universal, Paramount and DreamWorks studios signed up to produce movies in BLU-RAY, but SONY's withdrawal is expected to significantly reduce the number of films available in the format. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Industry boost[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=black][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]The end of the battle is expected to give the industry a boost, as it removes uncertainty for consumers over which format to buy. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]"The industry can now focus on getting the right product to the consumer, at the right price and in the volumes required," Paul O'Donovan said. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][/COLOR]

[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]SONY will continue to supply retailers with BLU-RAY machines until the end of March this year. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]After that, SONY will provide technical support to the estimated one million people worldwide who own BLU-RAY devices. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Microsoft offers an BLU-RAY drive with the Xbox 360 games console. The company told the BBC it did not believe the apparent end of the format would have an impact on Xbox sales. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]"It is games that sell the consoles and the Xbox has the largest next-gen games library," a Microsoft spokesperson said. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]SONY also makes BLU-RAY drives for PCs and laptop computers. [/FONT][/COLOR]
[COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]The BLU-RAY versus HD DVD battle has been likened to the VHS versus Betamax war of the 1980s. [/FONT][/COLOR]
