Just a few positive notes for the faithful HD DVD Camp (In case you haven't been keeping score): "People in gaming and game publishing are drastically less excited about PlayStation 3 than they were a year ago, and also a few months back, and competition is looking much stronger," says David Cole, a market analyst at DFC Intelligence, a San Diego market-research firm focused on the videogame industry. "There is a lot of anticipation about PS3, but not a lot of software coming out over the next few months that would excite consumers. And the price point ($600) is staggering." "At $600, it will be just too expensive for the mainstream," said Mark Friedler, chief executive officer and publisher of GameDaily, a games Web site and publication. "The question is how many people will upgrade to PS3 because the software for it also will be more expensive." In head to head comparisons of "Training Day" which is now available in both formats: Sound quality is a knockout blow. The Blu-Ray release gets a ported or copied version of the standard definition Dolby Digital 5.1 mix. The HD-DVD title gets not only a superior Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 mix, but a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack. Comparing the Dolby Digital Plus against the older mix quickly shows the fuller sound, truer bass and cleaner feeling that the new Plus mix is capable of. …with MPEG-2 in its corner and HD-DVD trained by VC-1, Blu-Ray was not quite ready for the fight. When it came time for Blu-Ray to cry out and be heard, HD-DVD pummeled him. -DVD Town …I just love that last line.
