Discussion in 'Blu-ray and UHD' started by Greg T, Feb 14, 2006.
Already talked about here: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...hreadid=251747 But you put a different spin on it...
Jeez, could this thread's title be spun any further?
Wow, is anyone really surprised at the possibility of another delay? I think both sides are looking at the market, seeing the demand just isn't there and now panicking a bit. I wouldn't be the least bit shocked if both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray are pushed back to the fall so they can try to promote the formats heavily for the holiday shopping season.
No delay after all... http://www.videobusiness.com/article/CA6308373.html
How easy would it be for hackers to crack the "carefully controlled conditions"? Heh, should be interesting when they come out to see what hackers can do.
HD-DVD "next" release date for software is March 28th. Anyone think they will make it?
I don't think they'll make it or they'll ship 10 of them out just so they can say that they made the date but no one will actually be able to get their hands on one. Either way, they better hurry since the release date is only about five weeks away.
Which means they needed to be on that slow boat from China......last week
Knee - jerk http://www.dvdreview.com/news/
Greg, that "knee jerk" article is 100% on the mark. Thanks for posting! (personally, it makes me sick that Sony has actually done a "resaonble" job of trying to estimate time-frames and release dates while Toshiba has just LIED and made-up dates to sound like their winning the launch game...and even the HT community allows themselves to get sucked into the deception!)
I'm certainly no HD-DVD apologist, but I also have MAJOR problems with Sony and all of their deceptive practices as of late. At this point, neither side is getting my money at launch because I refuse to support their petty format war with my dollars. Like most people here and in the market as a whole, I'll sit on the sidelines and wait for either one format to win or a universal player to be made.
Though Sony is one of the largest and highly recognized electronics ompany, it still boggles my mind how popular they could have really been if they just fell into place on so many things. That article from DVDreview was quite intersting. I personally never saw the real need for UMDs. To me it was a waste. Portable DVD players are cheap and it plays the same disc that your house dvd player can play. Again one of the main reasons to wait after the dust has cleared.
