In case anyone missed it Warner announced it was going strictly to Blu Ray a few days ago. It was the last major studio to make a decision and it get Blu Ray a big boost.

The rest is still unconfirmed rumors but it sounds like a lot of the other major studios left with HD-DVD may want to switch.


In the long run I think Blu Ray probably would be the way to go but I think its going to take awhile for them to take off. They have more memory capacity than the HD-DVD's but I think they're a little more expensive to produce. Eventually I'm sure like all electronics they'll start getting cheaper to produce and become more affordable. I can wait. I'm in no hurry to buy one. My standard DVD player works for me. \:\)

has less to do witht he discs -- the new players upconvert the old DVDs, as has been said -- than with the way we're all being forced to buy either an HD-TV or a ridiculously pricey converter box next year just to have something that can display the input. And what about watching Blu-Ray or HD-DVDs on your computer?

It's the forced hardware upgrade I'm ticked off about more than anything.
