Default Re: HD DVD vs. Bluray - what's the staus?

Hmm even Sony is not totally confident in Bluray's success anymore it seems: http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2007/11...ger_on_bluray/

Anyway my mind is made up; I made this thread in hopes that now after a year a clear winner could be chosen, but that doesn't seem to be the case, thus I'm gonna give him both an HD DVD movie (Heroes Season 1 Boxset or Transformers.. think I'm gonna go Heroes) and a Blueray movie (prolly 24, Prison Break or Lost.. think I'm gonna go Prison Break) for chrismas! That'll teach him to buy a player for both formats since he meeds all the conditions for a groovy movie experience except for the players themselfs.. yeah.. that'll teach him! Can't wait!

I'll wrap the HD DVD movie in red paper, the Bluray in Blue and play them both in a custom made "happy box", it's gonna be sweet

Now for his birthday he'll just get a note saying something like : "You're in for a pleasant surprise for chrismas, and don't worry it'll be worth the wait and double the value of any single present"
