Even the BDA admits BD still isn't ready for release
 
Magus and Hunt will tell you different, but I think I'll trust the BDA themselves:

Pure arrogance:

When BetaNews asked developers of BD Live whether they were concerned about a backlash from early adopters who supported the format from the beginning, we were told: "They knew what they were getting into."
Yeah, right. I am sure all the people at Best Buy who were yacked into BD purchases by some dumbass kid knew full well!

I've said since day one that BD launched incomplete, and the discs were a freaking mess. The PS3 Musketeers flamed away disputing it with NO FACTS, and here we have the BDA affirming what anyone with a brain knew all along.

Would have been nice if it didn't need to go anywhere from day one.

That's the point, why people make excuses for alpha testing on the public is beyond me...

He said 360.

And what about the supposed triple layer HD-DVD disc? Doesn't sound too final to me.

How did we go from talking about the Blu-ray spec to the Xbox 360?? One has nothing to do with the other.

The difference is, any HD-DVD player on the market will be able to play current, past and future releases with full features no problem.

That's the difference.

It's a disgrace that current owners won't be able to run future content.

Has there ever been a case of this happening in previous movie formats?

This so called format war has absolutely nothing to do with the consumers best interests, it's simply about the money. I'm usually ok with that, aslong as quality is assured.

I want a standalone player now that is futureproof from the off, and shouldn't have to buy a PS3 to guarantee that.

It takes the piss, really does.

But nobody knows if the triple layer discs would work on current discs... all I am saying.

I think the main selling point of HD-DVD is the fact it's consumer friendly and guaranteed throughout, I doubt they would scrap that strategy to risk alienating people. The BDA seem to have no quarms in doing this.

It's quite possible this entire generation of movie format might get overlooked ala VideoCD if both sides of the fence aren't careful.
