“While Universal values the close partnership we have shared with Toshiba, it is time to turn our focus to releasing new and catalog titles on Blu-ray,” said Craig Kornblau, president of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

“The path for widespread adoption of the next-generation platform has finally become clear. Universal will continue its aggressive efforts to broaden awareness for high-def’s unparalleled offerings in interactivity and connectivity, at an increasingly affordable price. The emergence of a single, high-definition format is cause for consumers, as well as the entire entertainment industry, to celebrate.”

Why does everyone want Serenity? I have seen it on HDDVD and it has to have been one of the worst movies ever. It was just cheesey as hell.

ViN86 is just bitter and hates Blu-ray because it has Sony on it, no matter what. ;)

In the beginning they had a choice... both formats had good backing... and hell HD-DVD had better quality yet the studios backing it is what caused it to fail. They didn't release enough titles aswell as enough good titles.

They gave the consumers a choice in the pricing aswell, the consumer went with the more expensive one because it provide them more titles, and hardware manufacturers.
