On Double Secret Probation
- Apr 1, 2004
I think SOny's strategy is to make BD live such a flop people will not care about 2.0.
Which reminds me of what many BD fans did when HDDVD lost. I think immature is immature, irregardless of whether one prefers BD or HDDVD.I think the point is that it seems the HD DVD fans are jumping all over this as a kind of "neener, neener, neener, I told you so, BD sucks"...
What if they had exclusive video clips of Iron Maiden?
Nope. I have enough concerts, bootlegs & have been to enough concerts.
Besides that, they (production companies, directors, etc.) wouldn't make anything that compelling an online only extra. They would want the most people possible to have it and put it on the disc. If they were to start making the main program content online only, then why even bother with the discs? They would just go with a VOD solution.
Don’t ya think it’s a ignorant BD talking point to say online HD DVD was a bust. It did what it was suppose to do from day one, something BD can’t say for most of its features. One of those misery loves company type statements, well not this time.I think the only folks who want 2.0 is the studios who want to sell movie stuff to you during the movie and the folks with nothing else to do except treat their movie viewing like it is a shopping channel!!
Maybe there might be a decent use for it in the future but right now -- even the online HD-DVD use was a bust. It is just another way to get into your pockets for some more money. Flesh out 1.1 and give me a movie and player with no problems under 1.1 and I will be very happy!!!
