We just reported
that Paramount is going to release high-def movies in both HD-DVD and
Blu-Ray formats. Looks like Warner and Universal are following suit
with expected announcements later this week
. Now this is really getting
interesting! Will we actually avoid a format war by having all of the
major movie production companies back both formats? What does this mean
for movies on the Xbox 360 and PS3?
If the hardware
manufacturers can't agree on a format and instead create two very
similar formats just to be greedy, I say good job movie shops! All of
the dual-format talk only hurts the already confused consumer. What do
you see as the downside to the move by Paramount and the expected
announcements from Warner and Universal?
