Warner Goes BluRay Exclusive

I have been seeing constant rumors on the Internet for months that Warner will go Blu-Ray exclusive at some point. Today there has been an announcement that Warner will continue to publish titles in Blu-Ray and HD-DVD until May 2008 then the will only publish their title with Blu-Ray from then on. This will definitely helping Blu-Ray in the format war.

    While I have been tempted to buy a duel player I still worry about that blu-ray are less robust — wasn’t there a plan to release them in those damnable caddies like RCA’s CED disc?

    Well, I hope these people have fun with their little war. I’ll buy a nice combo unit that plays both formats as soon as they become reasonably priced. The LG unit dropped from $1200 to $800 in less than a year. I really expect to see this war end exactly like the CD/DVD “plus” / “minus” war and everything become compatible with either format.

    Until then, I’ll enjoy a surprisingly nice picture from my upconverting DVD player.

    I got in on the $98 walmart deal for the Toshiba A2 or else I would still be waiting it out. Have to say the 5 Harry Potter movies look amazing from the Hd-dvd player on my 60in Sony.

    Walmart had only a few HD DVD titles in stock this morning and but had a lot of Bluray titles. I saw a really cheap Sony Blu at Sams before the holiday but I doubt it is still in stock.Sony may be able to bribe the world to use blu but I think I will buy another brand of mult player. Toshiba must be tired of e-mails on the question because I could not get the system to work — said I could not send the email because I did not choose a subject while it would not allow me to choose a subject. Where did this stand off lead for SACD and DVD AUDIO? I have a duel player and no titles to choose from other than a few at Boarders. Once in a while I go through internet sources but there is seldom a new one. Of cource it can be argued that these formats, while providing multi channels, do not really sound that much better so no one really bought in. HD is clearly better than SD tho I doubt there is any better picture from one than the other of the two. I guess Warner found no takers for their duel disc idea. SD and HD on one disc is rare and they cost more.

    HD DVD has been hit hard with several companies announcing they are going blue;netflex. Wal-mart and supposedly Best Buy among them.
