lol, so this is the end? =))

Great news for PS3, people will now buy more ps3 in usa, because it has a winning format to play HD moovies. =)

Anyway, that would be really funny, if on next week ps3 will get a boost in usa.

 I see this happening but not yet, maybe next holiday season.

Warner: New Line, HBO Not Covered By Blu-ray Announcement

Fri Jan 04, 2008 at 08:35 PM ET

Though it's widely expected that Warner Bros. subsidiaries New Line and HBO will follow Warner Home Entertainment to Blu-ray exclusivity, for the moment they remain format-agnostic.

That's according to Warner Home Entertainment President Kevin Tsujihara, who said that the studio's announcement that it would drop HD DVD support does not extend to titles released by New Line, HBO or the BBC (which Warner distributes here in the US).

"They'll be making whatever decision they're going to make," said Tsujihara. "I assume they'll let people know very quickly, but they are not covered by this initial announcement."

Tsujihara's comments came in a post-announcement conference call with various members of the media, including High-Def Digest.

Stay tuned for more news from the Warner conference call...

See what people are saying about this story in our forums area, or check out other recent discussions.

 

And the circle-jerking just keeps on coming.

Yet this does mean a LotR trilogy is still likely on both formats.


 I expect HBO and New Line to go Blu exclusive, New Line only released a couple of titles on HD DVD and was timed exclusive for Blu on new releases anyways, so they might just go Blu now instead of May

I have not bought one BluRay movie ever since it's pretty easy to download it off the web, but if HBO releases an Entourage bluray boxset then i'd HAVE to buy it. I can't find HD episodes of Entourage anywhere anymore.

First of all, you linked to the 2nd page, not the first, where the OP is.

Second, there is no link, and I have seen sites where someone pretends to be an official source without links.

Third, even if this is true, they are postponing the conference, not cancelling it. Did you just skim that part, or did you deliberately link to the wrong page so we would buy you twisting words?

@ LordTheNightKnight

Do you have shares in Toshiba?

You seem to be taking this pretty bad.



lol, lord, just let it go. HD DVD lost. geesh. I dont even need to argue with you anymore......ill just wait until all of the announcements come.

I mean it took 6 hours from this announcement for HD DVD PRG to cancel their CES event. Universal is ALREADY looking into BD replication (per insiders who have been right about eveything thus far)

Just take a deep breath, tip your cap and give it up. even the most die hard supporters on all th eHD forums are taking this better than you, its over. deal with it.

Have I stated that HD-DVD would win, or have I stated that this is not enough to push HD films into the mainsteam? There is a difference.

The thing here is that I'm fed up with the lies. I realise it's not that the people support blu-ray. It's that they DON'T support blu-ray. They only care about gloating like assholes, and latched onto blu-ray because it looked like the winner to them, NO BECAUSE OF ANY BENEFIT OF THAT FORMAT.

I'm mad because I realize if this is the audience for hi-def films, it has a CRAPPY AUDIENCE. I really liked the possibility for HD, but these jerks are not actually encouraging growth of the formats. They are just encouraging beating one side into the ground.

You think these people would stop gloating if that could guarantee blu-ray would win? They wouldn't since the DON'T REALLY CARE IF BLU-RAY WINS.

So I'm fed up with the liars, who don't really believe in their cause.

What needs to happen now is for Microsoft to make a comeback announcment like including a HD-DVD drive as standard in the X360 with no price increase.
