Default Save HD DVD!!!

To all of those people here who believe the consumer didn't chose Blu-Ray over HD. I know most of the people here support both formats and you probably have to agree that what Warner Bros did was sneaky, but you can't blame them for wanting to make money. If you think what Warner Bros did was wrong, especially for everyone whos invested in HD please sign the petition and lets keep HD alive.

Hate to point this out... but a few thousand signatures won't make them change their mind. If anything, it would prove how little of an HD-DVD market there really is (not that they don't already know that because they're going Blu-ray because of statistics).

I signed it simply because I always tend to vote for the underdog... and I really like the Xbox 360 hd-dvd player. It plays movies via USB!!! Find me a Blu-ray player that does that, and I'll be blu-ray dedicated.

if paramount and universal switches to blu-ray (which is semi confirmed but reminds to be a rumor) then this petition is useless.

I think all HD-DVD signaturers who really did not understood why HD-DVD lose and never done researched on VHS and Betamax history want to save HD-DVD?

It all about marketshare!!!

http://pages.stern.nyu.edu/~lcabral/...ng/betamax.pdf

Take a look at VHS and Betamax worldwide marketshare from 1975 to 1988:



In around 1985, UK retailers and wholesalers decided to dropped Betamax support and backed VHS as the home VCR format based on sales data with VHS accounted 70% of UK marketshare. VHS had nearly 80% of marketshare worldwide and Betamax had about 20% in 1985 then Sony finally conceded defeat in 1988 to ended Betamax support and started manufactured Sony branded VHS VCRs.

Below are the regions marketshare of Blu-ray at the end of 2007:

USA & Canada 61%
Europe 73%
Asia 75%
Japan 97%
Australia 90%

That worked out the average Blu-ray marketshare to be about 79% and HD-DVD had about 21% worldwide.

Just goes to show what sadists human beings really are.
They enjoy paying heightened rates for an inferior product, totally suckered in by advertising.

it's true that most blu-ray movies outsold hd-dvd movies. for players, that might be different story.

You'd have to take that into consideration. I don't have a PS3, but if I did, I would not buy a separate Blu-Ray player just yet due to costs.

Out of every 10,000 people ( movie buyers )

60 chose BD
40 chose HD DVD
9,900 didn't choose

Understand? Money is what "chose" this. Sometimes I wonder if you are really that dumb or just trying to be funny...
