According to announcements at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), New Line Cinema has joined Warner Bros in revealing that in future it would only be supplying its movies in Blu-ray format – the competitor to Toshiba's format. The news means that just two of Hollywood's major studios have retained support for HD-DVD, which is mainly supported by computer companies such as Microsoft. The Blu-ray consortium - which consists of a wide range of entertainment companies as well as manufacturers including Sony and Apple - now has the potential to become the de facto standard for next generation DVDs. The two formats – which both offer higher capacity discs that are able to hold larger, high-definition video files - are incompatible with each other.

This has been known for a few days now (if you visit the AVS forums often). If any of you actually go to CES and see what BR has to offer it's nothing more then BR machine with profile 2.0 that allows for ring tone download :roll:. Here is a post from a BR owner (only) who went to the event. From the tone in his post it's a humbling experience to know that HD was far more advanced the BR.

You as a consumer have to be careful not to follow those that "just want it to end already" those are the ones that prefer Pyhrric win :D. They don't care if it "cost them" but 9 out of 10 times, you do!

blu ray fits more data, which is good for PC stuff, but its an inferior format otherwise.

guess that time warner, n new line are siding with consumer popularity.
i read that post about the ces booths and what features both vendors boast, it doesnt seem like br is boasting anything more then the large capacities and the video [quality], doesnt read like there interested in strong feature, functionality and 'pirks' to their product.
the unfortunate thing is in this day n age, consumers (and i mean in the greater majority) do get their way and dont know whats good for them - in the long term, and eventho vendors cant and wont make the big decisions for consumers, its companys like warner bros n shite that should be backing the product that has better long term features, especially if they contain interactive content which will make these companies products more profitable, (longterm heh) maybe there just suseptable to careless popularity. shame really.
oh yea, i do look foward to the pc side of things prices crashing. really, cant wait.
wish i could goto that ces, i sooo want an lg watch phone, looks sweet :D

Couldnt agree more and also couldnt agree more with you EastCoastHandle.


Only the early consumers have chosen right now. It will still be at least another year before this format war is over. AT THE EARLIEST:shadedshu:shadedshu

New line cinema is owned by Time Warner who has already stated its stance on the next gen format so this doesn't come as any surprise, if a parent company adopts a format expect the rest of the group to follow suit.

And yet, Sony didnt win that war with Betamax now did they. Here we have folks bitching because BR is in the lead undisputedly. Get off the Sony bashing folks. They are boasting the same thing like HD is. Only now, with BR Java and something else, its mimicing what HD had going for it. Also, internet connectivity. Watch G4s coverage of CES2008. Yall might actually learn something.

I think an HD DVD burner by Toshiba (2x) is set to debut next quarter or not the quarter after that. Can write 15GB of data in 30 mins. Id like to have an HD DVD burner and BR Burner myself.

This is old news, New Line Cinema is Warner's sister company. New Line Cinema left at the same time Warner did. All I can say is LOTR for the Blu Ray MASSES!! Also it's nice to know that Blu ray gets Star Wars too. Damn... Blu-ray gets both of the most epic movies!!

They can fight all they want, but until there is a single format the adoption rate will be lower than it could be.

I honestly don't care who wins the HD format war, I just want ATI to come out with nVidia killer graphics card. :D

This is good news, not just because of blu-ray, but now we dont have to deal with two formats, which are about the same...but don't work in the same devices.

Sure... the dvd format was split between +/- (didn't affect retail movies), almost for the same reason, but at least it worked in the same devices.

At first they didn't work in the same devices. Plus, BD and HD do work in some of the same devices. Buy a dual format BD/HD ROM either set-top or PC and you are golden.

If you want it's out there.

we cant even get HD-DVD here (where i live at least) so i paid $30 for the DVD version... and it looked shit. I am convinced they made it blurrier, deliberately to sell the HD format.

this is old news, but i like reading it twice! i could not be happier with my blu-ray player (ps3). the colors and textures at 1080p are wonderful. and now the word going around corporate america is that paramount and universal in a months time will distribute blu-ray titles of their movies. so that means no hd-dvd exclusive titles which means the end of the hd-dvd. blu-ray has been the superior format for the past year with its higher capacity disks holding the superior compression of movies. so im glad i chose blu-ray. early adopters almost always make the decision of a format, so this comes as no surprise.

Nope. I downloaded the DVD version and burned it so I could watch it in my living room (oops, did I say that out loud?! :p). A Blu-Ray version would've been a nicer experience, but I wasn't going to buy a player based on a doomed format to begin with.

I guess, but you have to play royalties for that hardware :cry:
