The war for next gen video formats, fought between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD, is officially over. Toshiba, the proprietor of the HDDVD format, has jumped ship and dropped all support for HD-DVD movies, players, and will stop all production as of April.

I don't really care about the quality as long as it's not god-awful and it's watchable.

dont go buying that Blu-ray yet. wait for the 2.0 blu ray to com out & push the existing players prices down. b/c unless you have a 50+ inch TV you cant tell the diff between blu-ray 2.0 & the existing standard (as read on CNET)

I just got a Upscaling DVD Player, it looks awesome, and I really don't see why I need 1080p when I've only got a 22" tv.

the reason why blu ray dvds won is because Playstation 3. Blu Ray movies look awesome on a 1080p HDTV

Quote by bannanaman
are they going to back Blu Ray then?


Thats unknown at this time, there are rumors that Microsoft might even start releasing 360s with built in blu-ray, but that is complete and TOTAL speculation, so don't QFT. The rumors have come from people in the industry though, but still...

^ Agreed.

No, just like you can still buy tapes but you look like a mink and only get them in PoundLand.

They will eventually get rid of them, although I dont see that happening for a good few years until Blu-ray discs become the same prices as normal DVD's.


Edit0rz:

The PS3 did win the war, and Sony needed the PS3 to win to get that format the new standard.

Exactly. DVD is still THE main video format, even with this win, it will be at least a year before it becomes the standard. With something like a price tag of at least 700$ for the smallest of 1080p capable TV sets, and 600 (i.e. Ps3 for the cheapest one) more for the player, with videos running at 30$ a pop, the prices need to come down considerably before the general populace embraces it.

Lol , i laughed at that XD

I remember when DVD came out and VHS was "the thing" I had a new DVD player and my friends were like "Whats the point, VHS is still good". Jealous IMO, but yeah Blu-ray will probs take over in the next few years, just like DVD.

I wasn't around when the Betamax vs. VHS happened, was it just like HD-DVD and Blu-ray?

I'm still having trouble getting rid of my VHS. So, what if consumers refuse to buy new dvd players and just stick with the old ones. Don't buy Blue Ray. Need creates markets. They will slowly phase out old dvds so the need for Blue Ray works. And then they will have created a recycled junk market that they can revolve in a few more years. I hate distribution companies. Let us stick with the dvd medium and be done with it. Entertainment Technology is in a null.

Most old dvd players play dvds and cds. Who cares about Blu-ray discs. Unless you have a big screen hd tv then they are useless.

I'm usually happier when I watch a good quality pirate [DVD].

I can't see my family being able to afford a HD telly in the near future, so until then there's no point owning some super high tech DVD player. Our TV looks like its going to be working for a long time.

You're missing the point. The point was that DVDs won't become obsolete for a loooooong time, especially with Blu-ray players being able to read them. By the time Blu-ray players drop in price enough to become the common household standard, your DVD player will probably need replacing due to age anyway, so a transition to a Blu-ray player will come naturally.

Believe me, I thought that DVDs were useless when I was a kid, and that 800Mb CDs were all I'll ever need.
