    Man I wish some of you would wake up from your delusions...
    Of course the co-president of HD-DVD is going to say it's here to stay! Geez.. you think he's gonna publicly denounce his own format?

    Those words mean jack-all in terms of the format war, you need to see the facts my friend.

    Blu-Ray has 70% of the home video market and is outselling HD-DVD 13:1 in terms of optical drive sales across all platforms. It's backed the biggest film studios and electronics manufacturers in the world and has the financial backing to drag on this "war" as long as it takes for BD to gain 100% of the market share.

    HD-DVD maybe "here to stay" in the short-term, but 23,000 signatures and bunch of crap exclusive titles is a drop in the ocean, it means nothing.

    Yea, and you're a sucker for buying into Sony's proprietary DRM infected product. I bet you are one of those people that bought a PS3 (trojan horse) and just happen to get lucky that it's also a Blu-ray player. What sucks is that all the REAL a/v enthusiasts get screwed over by a kiddie game console, if it wasn't for Sony's marketing tactics with the Trojan horse, Blu wouldn't be were it is today, I don't care what people say, their huge sales numbers are all related to that game console.

    HD DVD isn't going anywhere, there are plenty of titles available to keep it around for years.

    I say just stop with the format war already and let Blu-ray win. This way ALL dvd titles will be on one format and we can all get on with our lives. Not to mention Blu-ray was designed to hold up in the future with its greater disc capacity and besides its already selling better than HDDVD. You HDDVD supporters are just mad because you rushed out and got a HDDVD player with dvds because it was the cheaper of the two formats and you have no patience. Blu-ray is superior so just accept your losses, sell your HDDVD players now while you still can, and start enjoying Blu-ray!

    i think blueray has pretty much already won. u might want to hold off selling the hddvd player though. from what ive read blueray has a lot more copy protection than hddvd. and a lot of that protection is built into the player. we all know sony and its "team" update there protection very frequently. so what if u had a blueray ray rom drive to rip and a hddvd burner to burn, and a hddvd player to play. that way u could back-up ur blueray collection pretty easy. i think slysoft and a few others could handle this easy. think about it, hddvd players wont be updated much if at all. besides that u will only be playing ur backups, so there wont be any firmware updates at all. the way i understand it, is blueray and hddvd can update firmware keys(if cracked) by just playing a new release movie. they will update automatically, so the old key( on ur back-ups) will not work anymore. if hddvd isnt updated then it will still play ur backups. just something to think about.

    So true, dont sit on your computer and bitch that it's better. Prove it by buying more and more of it. Toshiba care about sales figures not signatures.

    wow, what a mature response.

    First, HD DVD players took a hit after the warner announcement, but it is no sign of any kind of trend. The latest videoscan numbers show that it was just a blip, and that the majority of blu-ray players were not sold, but were giveaways with HDTVs.

    Second, The A3, A30, and A35 are all in Amazons top 5 for DVD players right now, with Blu-ray at spot number 12, not even in the top ten.

    Third, Warner has an opt out clause if Blu standalone don't actually start to sell, Giveaways don't count. HD DVD standalone have been flying off the shelves, with retailers struggling to keep stock. And regardless, we still get Blockbusters such as I am Legend, and great Catalog titles such as the dirty harry box sets etc. Hmmm, haven't seen a Matrix announcement for Blu yet???

    Forth Universal, Paramount and dream works hold more rights to "Good" films than any other distributor. There are also over 1000 independent studio title exclusively on HD DVD. And the Present title count(Big Studio) is almost even, and is actually in HD DVD favor if you include imports since HD DVD is region free.

    Your numbers you stated are inaccurate and meaningless since you didn't bother to do any research yourself and are just spouting nonsense you read at blu-ray.com (The most biased site in HDM)

    Fifth Universal and Paramounts Theater lineup this year has more blockbusters than all studios combined. Cloverfield, Indiana Jones etc.

    No run along and play your PS3 already.

    Oh, and Studios actually have to release titles and on time to honestly be considered supported. Fox and Newlines support has been insulting at best.

    I just recently got another PS3 (Free this time) so im duel format, but prefer the consumer friendly, finished format. Just imagine in a year or two if Blu-ray actually takes off, "Mommy why wont the Disney game advertised on the box work on our player".. " I don't know hunny, it should" "WTF, i have to buy a new player, since i cant upgrade it??" ..."WTF, the only upgradeable players is a game console??" Doesn't that just scream mass acceptance?? LMAO

    You think we will ever see an Indiana Jones box set? I know Universal was behind those film's but, I know that Steven Spielberg directed them and wasn't there some stuff floaten around on the net stating that his films would be never see HD DVD?

    Most of that was just FUD and spins taking a Spielberg quote out of context; it was more along the lines of he wouldnt release his catalog titles in HDM (red or blu) right away, and the smurfs spun it to death. I cant find the original link anymore, doh. I'm not sure about a box set, but the new installment is said to come out Day and date with the DVD release.
