Default Rumor, strong one, about WB going HD DVD exclusive and possible Disney neutral

Should pan out by Friday otherwise was BS...

Studios are recognizing that HD DVD has a 5x greater attach rate than BD. BD's "2:1" sales lead ( miniscule total sales numbers ) is impressing no one given the staggering difference in installed base.

For srs? Do you have any links? I haven't gone to AVS all day...

EDIT: Just went over to AVS and saw that BeatBoy was spreading a bunch of stuff around. Nice. $225 million for WB to go HD DVD? Sweet deal.

When you consider BD's player installed base, studio support, PS3 fanboy support, retailer buyouts etc... their sales #'s are pathetic. HD DVD has shown it SELLS hard, just need more players out there.

I am thoroughly enjoying reading all the BD fanboys posts on AVS, crying about " HD DVD needs to buy support huhhuhuhuhuh hu derr uhh hddudh"

HD DVD simply decided to play Sony's game in the mud with them, and is better than them at it.

I hope Microsoft gets more involved. Microsoft could buy and sell Sony's ass 20x over in cash.

I just wish one format would win out over the other soon.

I really wish HD-DVD would win this war.

BD victory will be bad for everyone.

That Beatboy guy is full of crap. He speculates and none of it ever comes true. He got all the Blu Ray fans hopes up by posting a thread saying there was a big announcement coming in 24 hours. The thread has now been deleted.

I know I'm not the only one who believes that even if EVERY studio switched to HD DVD, Sony/Columbia/Tristar would continue releasing exclusively on Blu-ray as long as they possibly could.
