Also, why is it BD's BEST EXCLUSIVE TITLES on BD50's look no better than HD DVD's? You have eaten the FUD hook, line, and sinker.

Gaco, this is how I picture you:



Gaco, find me a BD50 from an exclusive studio that surpasses the best HD DVD's. You can't. Oh I know, it's because the technology "is in its infancy" right? I should "just wait" since awesome things are coming, right? BD has had two years to show one single advantage ON THE SCREEN where it counts. If you *could* make a BD outshine an HD DVD, it would have been done. Do you think Sony would NOT do a mega high bitrate encode to blow away HD DVD if they could? No one gives a **** about specs except fanboys. The end result is what appears on the screen. BD holds no advantage. All you want to do is spew talking points and mindless dribble the BDA has fed you. Nearly 500 BD's out there, haven't found a single one that shows BD can do more than HD DVD. My response to your debate is : SHOW ME.

Balls' in your court.
Example: Before Paramount had their ass bought out to HD DVD they made specialized transfers for Blu-Ray that was superior to HD DVD. One of the noticable: Mission Impossible 3.

Buena Vista who destributed "The Prestige" got a high bitrate AVC encode treatment from Pioneer labs with PCM sound where the HD DVD version had a low bitrate VC-1 with DD sound.

Same here. I don't think I've ever watched more than a few minutes of commentary material or "making of" stuff. I've watched some interesting bits, e.g. the "rules and clues" section of the sixth sense DVD where the director explains parts of the movie in better detail, but thats about it.

King Kong, like porn, should probably stay on SD.

It just shows how crappy ( fake ) the CG is when HD DVD cleans it up.

You'll find the biggest differences in HDM v DVD in closeups of faces.

No "They had to go with the lowest common denonminator" excuses.
