Thank you for proving my point about you not respecting other people and your general attitude. Better luck next time.Originally Posted by ABC
Is this another one of your "Facts"?Ok, please try to make sense when you TRY to sound smart so you don't look like a complete douchebag.
You're right. UMD didn't have competition and it still failed. However I didn't argue that it did. The fact that Blu Ray is in competition only means that they have an even worse chance of succeeding. Portables Vs Home doesn't matter. You still haven't addressed my point - film companies support doesn't automatically mean success. I even added that DVD is still winning.There is nothing that you have written that is damaging to my argument. Here, let me brake it down for you since your supposed "intelligent" mind can't comprehend it. You CAN NOT compare a format that is unchallenged. UMD has nothing competeing against it. Not to mention it's in a completely different feild (portables) Vs. home entertainment. To try and even justrify that rediculous argument is making you look even more uneducated.
Ye it is, considering it failed against no competition.Never once did I say that the support that Blu-Ray is recieving BY MOVIE STUDIOS proves their success at such an early stage. So if you are done taking my words out of context and twisting what I say to make you look "cool", this debate can go on. Again, your comparing the unrivaled UMD to something completely different. Hahha it's funny though.
This once again proves you've got attitude problems (also a warped sense of reality).What you see is what you get. You just don't want to accept it so your crying about it.
How about inside industry testimony?:Again, your bringing UMD into this argument... Jesus, why don't you PLEASE get me some HD DVD facts and stats instead of UMD. It's getting kind of sad really.

In the vital area of picture quality, both formats also have a difficult time differentiating between one another. "Either format can produce a very good image," says Richard Dean, director of technical business development at THX Inc. "To me, it boils down to the price of the equipment and the availability of content."
Dean, who has helped master the DVD releases of the Star Wars trilogy and other blockbuster movies, says that consumers won't notice any real quality difference between the formats. But he says HD-DVD may end up with an advantage if it can under price Blu-Ray discs and players. "I think that's going to play a very large role." As for Blu-Ray's greater storage capacity, "more space is always an advantage," Dean says, "but the question is how much more space is really needed." Notes Parsons: "If you start doing HD bonus features, it will suck up capacity very quickly."
Intel executives, who first got involved in the working groups for next-generation DVD formats to help avoid a format war, already are bracing for an era of consumer confusion as a Blu-Ray-vs.-HD-DVD scenario takes shape. "We didn't want two formats coming out," says Balogh. "Now we have an even standoff, so neither side wants to compromise whatsoever." Making matters worse, he says, the entertainment studios also are split between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD, although more big studios have backed HD-DVD at this point.
"The studios will be the kingmakers here," he says. Ultimately, consumers may struggle to figure out what kind of players and media to purchase during the next couple of years. "The most important benefit to the consumer is that the HD-DVD players that we'll be introducing to the market this year will be fully backward compatible with the current DVDs that are already in consumers' homes. With the Blu-Ray formats' backward compatibility isn't so simple," adds Sally.
Still, many are wary. "It would be best if we went to market without two formats," says Panasonic's Doherty. "We're very disappointed that we're in a format war." As the battle heats up in 2005 and well into 2006, consumers will decide which format will succeed.
Nope. UMD is still a valid point. Number of companies supposedly backing Blu-Ray technology will not automatically make it the victor. You've proved nothing other than you're arrogant.I think I have pretty much squashed anything you found damaging.
I'm talking about people in general. I think as a community, we should at least be courteous to each other, which is something you seem to be against.Just because I don't respect you, don't get all bitchy about it. Maybe bringing up another UMD statistic will help you cope with it though.
UMD applies because it's an example of film companies and studios backing something which failed, regardless of strength of the backing. Regular DVD's are still a very appealing alternative to a great number of people. These are two very important points I'm trying to get across.Then stop talking, your UMD, Last-gen DVD arguments make no sense nor apply.
Then we're drawing.I vote for me. Aww..
Once again, showing how immature your arguement is.
