Nice! Good to see the better format winning. Format war is basically over now IMO. And good thing I choose the right one

Yep. Just got home and read this. I bet that Sony paid Warner a LARGE sum of money, Just like HD-DVD did to Paramount. It'll be interesting to see what HD-DVD has to say at their CES press conference on Sunday. Good thing I didn't buy alot of HD-DVD's. Only have about 15 of em. I wouldn't call it the better format since it's more expensive. But even though I am a HD-DVD guy, I'm glad that I can finally buy HDM and not have to worry if it will go away.

Well I don't think either format has won yet since Paramount is still HD-DVD correct?

This puts HD DVD down for the count. I predict $99 HD DVD players very soon.

Well weeks ago I read the reports about Warner's expect to announcement Blu-ray exclusive at CES, if Warner go exclusive then Fox will go Blu-ray exclusive to join with Warner and also Paramount will take $150m HD-DVD money and run to Blu-ray camp, meaning Paramount will have no choice but to dump HD-DVD a year earlier than when 18 month contract due to expire.

Same thing happened to $99 Betamax, it sold out in a matter of days until supply completed vanished and discontinued. I think if all HD-DVD players sell at $99 then it will vanish completely and discontinue by June/July 2008.

Why do you think everyone will suddenly go exclusive? Separate companies no?

I dont think HD DVD will die that soon but I do see price cuts coming.

So why did everybody wanted Blu-ray? Cos it offer bigger storage than HD-DVD and the studios recognised Blu-ray has massive market around the globe than HD-DVD. Blu-ray had a big head start with cheaper Blu-ray writers and later this year Blu-ray recorders will launch in Europe and USA.

What about HD-DVD? None, they completed missed the boat.

Losing Warner is a HUGE I mean HUGE hit for HD DVD. They are one of the most active HDM publishers of all the studios and the result is now that Blu-ray sits on 70% of the market and IMO the format war is basically over. The Paramount deal was only for 18 months which means about a year to go. The future is blu, and it was only after extensive research all through november and december that I bought into BD this chrismas. I'm glad I made the right choice myself.
