And god came down from the heavens and created the fanboy, with this fanboy he instilled "don't confuse me with the facts my mind is made up".

HD DVD is the best choice on all fronts, if anyone tries to argue this fact they just seem silly.

Good luck with the petition but it's probably not going to help one bit:

is there a petition to kill HD-DVD?

have you guys read that petition? its retarded

Quote:
The only thing Blu-Ray has going for it is 20GB of extra storage space, and a big name like Sony backing it up. HD-DVD on the other hand has PIP, web-enabled features, in movie menus, and much more. And if extra space is needed, use another disc, big deal.
like anybody is gonna take that seriously... "big deal"

Instead of putting HD DVD out of its misery we need to put some of the users out of there misery. The bitching is unreal. HD DVD is dead because Sony advertised Blu-ray (yeah you figure that one out), I read Blu-ray is inferior on a forum, I don't have neither but I hate Blu-ray because Sony killed my cat, I rather play with neat menu's and buttons on my remote than watching the movie, Blu-ray is the reason there are no commercials on TV for HD DVD.

HD-DVD supporters did screw up with not advertising the crap out of HD-DVD. I believe that I've only seen 3 magazine ads for HD-DVD, no commercials on TV nor Radio. Blu-Ray however has advertisements all over the place! More people are more familiar with BR, not because of the PS3 but from the ads.

If it were up to me, HD-DVD would be crowned the winner and we could be happy. But really, all I want is a HDM that plays my movies in native 1080i/p with 5.1 surround sound and have room to grow for future technologies, i.e. 7.1 surround sound, 1080p resolution.

if you want my honest opinion... i used to be on hd-dvd side because it's superior. blu-ray was crap until later they finally added features and this year we'll be seeing bd live and picture-in-picture, etc. also bd has improved by using newer codec which looks alot better than mpeg2.

so i started to hop on bd bandwidth just because it's getting better and is more likely to win the format war. soon if not sooner, bd will be far more superior than hd-dvd. it's reason why i got ps3 to watch bd movies since it's able to update up to profile 2.0 (or maybe 3.0) so i don't have to worry about spending $$$ on player (i'm college student so yeah i'm broke lol). until i graduate, i'm gonna buy nice bd player when format war ends, ablility to upgrade with firmwire via internet and price drops.
