Default Paramount CTO explains their decision

Pretty much what I've been saying all along wrt to BD's complete lack of standards, over complexity, and high cost. ( PROGRAMMERs to author discs, lol! )


Keep in mind Paramount was a neutral studio prior to this. The BD fanboys believe it's all due to a "buyout", but that isn't really the case. Studios are hurting with the costs involved in making BD's, which provide no technological benefit or featureset over HD DVD.

2:1 in sales in favor of BD, currently, but what about profits? Studios don't care about sales numbers from Neilson, they care about profits. BD is a dead-end.
