Here it is. The first title bout between HD DVD and Blu-ray brought to you by Warner Home Video. In one corner with have the HD DVD flavor of Training Day that maybe encoded in 1080p but sufferers from a player that doesn't output the higher resolution. This title was deemed a long time ago, a great HD DVD film transfer and has been waiting for it's Blu-ray counterpart to show up so he can show 'em who is the boss.
Then in the other corner we have the rookie Blu-ray version of Training Day and even though he was just released, he is 1080p through and through, from movie to player to HDTV. His corner has been plagued with problematic noise-reduction issues and while some of his other Blu-ray brethren may have had issue in the past, this version of Training Day is ready to stand up against the HD DVD monster. We don't know who is going to come out on top of this one folks as it is going to be one mighty battle.
