Yeah, apart from the BD version having a slightly higher bitrate, there is absolutely no difference between either version.

I think you should wait a few days to let the anticipation build some more.

Just read that on the Blu-ray (not sure about HD-DVD) version you can switch cameras on a few songs... that feature was always so overlooked on DVD.

Yeah...on the three songs in the middle of the set, Eraser, Right Where It Belongs and Beside You In Time you can either watch with multiple cameras capturing the projections on the big screen that comes down over the stage in front of the band, interspersed with shots of the band playing...or you can watch from a camera that is stationary, back by the soundboard, right above the projector.

The HD DVD has it, too, but they sucked it up and you can't switch views on the fly like you can on the DVD and BD.

I saw those damned projections 6 times so I'm definitely cool with the shots of the band since we couldn't see them playing from the crowd.

Here's a shot from Eraser, I believe.

Wait the DVD has it but the HD-DVD doesn't? Sounds weird (don't worry won't turn this into a HD-DUDZ LAWLASZR topic, just seems strange to me).

Yeah, I know, it's weird. They claimed they didn't have enough time during the authoring phase to get the on-the-fly angle changing working, which I call BS on. Look at all the other HD DVDs that were out, even when they WERE authoring (probably sometime around late August, early September) and had all of the advanced functionality.

I think they just plain ran out of time, or didn't give it the time in the first place.

I just read you can see the videos as an easter egg? Is that true? Couldn't be time limitation if that is true... that is just strange.

I don't understand what you mean...the alternate angles are on all three versions, you just can't switch between them on the fly with the HD DVD...they weren't able to get that working in time.

Ah ok.... I thought you were trying to say they weren't on there at all... I am retarded and didn't read it fully.
