    When you two are done pissing, crying, and shooting testosterone all over each other we can get back to the actual topic.....

    Anyways, aside from the fact that PS3 is making Blu-Ray look horrible, HD-DVD is being supported by, oh I dunno, Microsoft.

    As evil as they might be you cannot deny the power they hold. Wouldnt it be a shame if they just forgot to correctly integrate Blu-Ray into Vista? Sure all you Apple users would be fine and dandy with Blu-Ray, but in the end who do you really think is gonna win?

    Xbox 360 will get cheaper and cheaper, and the HD-DVD addon will too, whereas PS3 will never get cheaper (already at -$300 per console sale). HD-DVD certainly has my support because Xbox360 isnt forcing it down our throats in order to play what we want. They make it an option.

    Yes M'am!!

    Excuse me while I pass on the walk down emo lane.

    Regardless of what movie studios support it right now, its really in the computing worlds hands. What with all these media center PCs and all, its getting closer and closer to the day that people use PCs to run their entertainment centers and not stand-alone players. But hey, anything can happen so theres no telling, just guessing.

    Are you trying to imply that I may be emo? I am an Italian speaking electronic music producer from New Jersey... you don't see many of those kids around here. But if you say so.

    Even if it was only hitachi, microsoft, and intel backing hd-dvd, I would still very much stick to my opinion.

    It gets better. Much better... read on.

    Companies listed as Members of the Board or Managing Members

    Blu-Ray -

    Apple Computer Corp.
    Dell, Inc.
    Hewlett Packard Company
    Hitachi, Ltd.
    LG Electronics Inc.
    Mitsubishi Electric Corporation
    Panasonic (Matsushita Electric)
    Pioneer Corporation
    Royal Philips Electronics
    Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
    Sharp Corporation
    Sony Corporation
    TDK Corporation
    Thomson
    Twentieth Century Fox
    Walt Disney Pictures and Television

    HD DVD

    Memory-Tech Corporation
    NEC Corporation
    Sanyo Electric Co.

    ^Yup, you read that correctly. Those are the technology companies backing HD DVD. If we were to tally the score right now, Blu-Ray took the cake and the table too. Get the facts, it really might expand your mind a bit.

    Here ya go, read the full article, Blu-Ray is far in the lead:

    Blu-ray vs HD DVD: State of the Division - Engadget

    Not like you can argue against the above FACTS anyway, but here, I will even go as far to see who is doing better financially. As most of us know, the companies that founded Blu-Ray are Sony and Philips Electronics and the ones that founded HD DVD are Toshiba and Hitachi. Here are the stock quotes:

    HD DVD

    Toshiba Stock at 5.04
    Hitachi Stock at 58.80

    Blu Ray

    Sony Stock at 39.69
    Philips Stock at 37.42

    So you can clearly see there are two VERY stable companies that founded and are investing the most into Blu-Ray while HD-DVD has Hitachi that is actually making some money. Stability is key in the world of electronics. Anyone? Please, I would love to hear what you have to say to the above stated FACTS.
    In terms of being backed up and power, Blu-Ray is far superior. But it's the same deal with Betamax.

    Betamax was actually better and more useful than VHS, but it was way more expensive. I think that Blu-Ray is behind HD-DVD because of that.
    If you want peace, you must be prepared for war.
