Again, things are looking bleak for HD-DVD, I know that, I am just pointing out how these numbers, which as I stated above are almost exclusively due to 3:10 to Yuma sales, are slanted, skewed, and otherwise turned into the same type of propaganda that Sony has used from the start knowing that most consumers don't research the truth behind the statistics and put blind faith into what they read online or in print. Holy crap that was one long run-on sentence...
Isn't that Sony's thing great marketing and propaganda. I think they learned a lesson from Betamax.

I wonder how much of a decision maker it is for some when looking for an HD player that you can only find Toshiba with HD-DVD, yet there are a number of other manufacturers making BR machines. I think this might sway some people too. You have a choice for BR, Samsung, Panasonic, Sony, Denon(soon) etc. Unless you buy a universal for huge dollars you are stuck with Toshiba for HD-DVD. It looks to me like the electronics industry is backing BR more as well.

Hey all of you Blu-Ray lovers, and HD-DVD haters! I just wanted to say "Thank you" for keeping this conversation civilized. I made the mistake of talking about HD-DVD and Blu-Ray on another forum not even related to home theater, and the site admin believes that Sony walks on water, and everything on "news" sites are 100% accurate with no spin. Sony HAD to win this. They lost WAY too much money already, and went from #1 to #3 (or if you count the DS #4) in hardware sales. That is a HUGE hit for them too. It got to a point where they had lost SO much money already, that they just had to throw more at it and try to finish off HD-DVD.

Anyway, on this other site, most people proved my points that the general consumer is still happy with DVD and does know anything, or care anything about HD movies on disc, but their site admin/owner started throwing insults, and accused me of being from AVS!!!! Of all of the nerve! I haven't been active on AVS for years. I told him, privately, that exact fact and let him know that it is a few bad apples (OK, quite a few, but compared to the number of users over there) that spoil it for everyone, and that is exactly what he has now done to his own site.

I then posted a nice farewell note to everyone else and thanked them for the help that they had provided and didn't get into the details much more than a couple of "personality conflicts"....

So anyway, I am just happy that we don't have to do that here. We can all disagree, and yet keep the conversations civil and adult.

So again, all you evil Blu-Ray lovers, thank you!
(Joking about the evil part by the way.)

Universal and Paramount are sticking to their guns with HDDVD, they are coming out with some good movies and this thing is far from over, I'll continue to buy HDDVD titles as long as they continue to produce them.
I'll also buy Blu-Ray titles that are keepers, even though the thought of supporting Sony makes me gag, at my age I'm not going to miss out on my enjoyment because of corporate greed.

medic8r, I've been sporting the red mad face for a couple of weeks now. Imagine why.... I did remove my Dr Evil picture from my sig, so I'm getting back to normal...

Oh, here was the Dr. Evil pic just for fun:


HomeDad, I'll have to check out what is coming out in HD-DVD still. I just wish that LOTR would come out before New Line switches in May/June...

Maybe that will be their final HD-DVD release, LOTR trilogy in both BR and HD-DVD, we can always dream.

I was pysched to see that one of my all time favorites "Princess Bride" is coming out in Bluray. I rarely buy movies (except for kid movies since they watch it 10 times a day for two months!) but Bluray and HD made me buy a few movies. Transformers on HD, Live Free or Die Hard on Bluray. The 12 free movies I got 5 from HD and 7 from Bluray didn't hurt either! \:\)
