There is an excellent article that appeared on Slate a few days ago, entitled How Widescreen Won. It’s a great read, and the writer really hits the nail on the head, on all accounts. It explains why widescreen DVD’s outsell their full screen counterparts by such a wide margin these days, even for family oriented titles. It’s a long article, and it really goes in depth on the whole widescreen vs. fullscreen issue, and it also explains why mainstream consumers have embraced DVD’s so wholeheartedly. I stongly encouarge everyone to read this excellent article.
