DVD Format War update

BluRayDVD.jpgA couple of updates in the world of the DVD format war between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD today, nothing exceptionally major, but some interesting developments for those of you following this and not just already agreed that Blu-Ray have clinched it.

From Kung Fu Cult Cinema they have the news that HP are looking to jump ship from Blu-Ray to HD-DVD, something they’ve been threatening for a long time. To summarise, HP want one way of securing content, the way HD-DVD are going but Blu-Ray don’t, or rather they’ll look at it but not so as it will affect roll out of the technology.

The HD-DVD technology is incorporated in Microsoft software, whereas Blu-Ray want to go the way of Java, a much more open, multi-platform and generally more sensible way of doing it.

HP have been talking about jumping ship if Blu-Ray won’t decide, but the industry is already starting to speak out that Blu-Ray are the winners, and quite frankly it seems that they’re the better choice.

However, looks like their marketing stinks with the news from Screen Rant that Sony has produced the first Blu-Ray format DVD. They’re really gone to town on it too, they’ve thought long and hard and produced the DVD that’s really going to push both the technical barriers and punt those sales through the roof.

Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle

Damn. How could anyone compete with that?
