First it was who had the better format for storage; both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray can store a gazillion bits of data, so it's time for a change in battle tactics. Now the jabs are starting to pepper the security factor of each format
. Not that this will surprise you but each format claims to have the most effective security.
Yesterday the Blu-Ray folks returned fire
from the previous day's HD-DVD attacks. On Tuesday, the HD-DVD camp declared their security is as good as Blu-Ray and won't bring any playback issues on to the consumer
. The Blu-Ray brigade fired back yesterday indicating that their ROM Mark will enhance content security and won't present any incompatibility issues.
In a related side note, Blizzard Entertainment
is considering a sequel to their wildly popular battle game "Worlds of Warcraft". The next game is called "Discs of Doom" and players must swear loyalty to either the HD-DVD guild or the Blu-Ray band of bandits. Before you gamers get excited, we're obviously joking: clearly you could never get a single guild to agree on a DVD format.
