I’ve noticed several interesting artciles about BluRay and HDDVD that never made it to the front page of CDFreaks, that show a very different side of the format war, so I thought I’d share them here:
People have claimed that Sony has ruled out Porn for BluRay. This is however false:
People have claimed that BluRay is losing support from major players. However New Line has recently decided to switch from being an HDDVD exclusive studio, to a neuteral supporter, in favour of TotalHD releases:
Another interesting fact is Universal made the odd move of NOT announcing any new movies for 2007 on (HDDVD) at CES:
So for those of you keeping score, All the major studios now release on BluRay, either neutrally or exclusively, with the exception of Universal, who currently has no plans to release on either format according to public information (they’re obviously pausing for a reason, perhaps they are considering switching sides?). In the short term however, it does seem that porn will be more available on HDDVD then BluRay, but not completely unavailable on BluRay.
Is anyone else curious why none of this information made it to the front page?
