    If anyone thought that HD was a dead format received a rude awakening when it was announced that Paramount and Dreamworks returned to HD, this time exclusive to HD only.

    Interesting, I'd think they'd go the other way since most sources say Blu-ray has outsold HD-DVD by a 2:1 margin in '07. Something along the lines of that, even though HD-DVD has cheaper standalone players Blu-ray is riding alot on PS3's. Interesting to see the studios swayed that way.

    lol. Same thing happened with video tapes. Back then it was VHS vs BetaMax. Interestingly enough, BetaMax was developed by Sony, and was a technically superior format. We see where that ended up. lol.
