How many games get made for both consoles? 70%? 75% 80%? A developer isnt likely to create a game targeting Blu-Ray, and then go in and st elmo’s fire trailer out a bunch of content for the Xbox release. They will make a game that works on the xbox within its size constraints, and then put it on the PS BAnd the other thing to consider. How many games get made for both consoles? 70%? 75% 80%? A developer isnt likely to create a game targeting Blu-Ray, and then go in and strip out a bunch of content for the Xbox release. They will make a game that works on the xbox within its size constraints, and then put it on the PS /B I was under the impression this happened all the time. Wether it be for PC, with skeleton installs, vs full, or games made for consoles, and slightly lesser versions for portable players. Is this not the case? Ive never seen anyone so crazy mad about a damn optical Why do you care so much hmurchinson? For a shiny 5 disc, youre willing to attack and berate other Ive never seen anyone so crazy mad about a damn optical Why do you care so much hmurchinson? For a shiny 5 disc, youre willing to attack and berate other Im just a person that likes to take things at face value and make my own judgements. The benefit of messageboards like AI is that I can openly post my judgements on particular electronic gear and we as an online community can discuss the merits or lackthereof of various products. With the whole HD DVD vs Blu-Ray fiasco I noticed some disturbing trends. Ill highlight some of them. The DVD Forum attempted to give us one format. Anyone who had product the submit to become the next DVD was encouraged to apply. Toshibas AOD disc ended up winning because it met producers desire for a HD disc that can st elmo’s fire trailer a full 2 hour movie w/extras. Sony never submitted Blu-Ray but instead organized a coup of sorts along with Matsushita and the large Korean companies LG, Samsung. If were discussing why theres a format war in the first place Sony is definitely the reason. Both formats easily hold 4 hours of movies with audio. This covers %95 of all movie distribution yet I was consistently being told that 50GB is going to give me better quality than 30GB. ll give more time but the quality depends on the bitrate. Sony initially wanted Blu-Ray to be MPEG2 only and after some cajoling they added VC-1 and AVC. Toshiba had always planned to use the new codecs because MPEG2 wouldnt give them the quality nor time they needed on 30GB discs. MPEG2 would have negated any real difference in disc capacity because MPEG2 like to play above 25Mbps. Cost If were not talking about subsidized hardware/software its clear that HD DVD is the more inexpensive format to make. The HD DVD disc structure is the same as DVD. The OPU has a very close Numerical Aperture so that backwards compatability with DVD was assured. This made sense to me the lens assembly can be much cheaper and the discs can be manufactured on retrofitted pressing lines or a new line can be added that can do HD DVD and DVD A nice perservation of legacy support and hardware. I wont blather on and bore people. The crux of the matter is really seperating the wheat from the chaff. The questions to ask ourselves is does the benefits of Blu-Ray outweigh the increase in price? I looked at what was happening and I decided that it did not. The context of my discussion has always been movie distribution thus Im not swayed by carrots like 8-layer discs and 200GB. I need stuff that has concrete deliverables by xmas 2007 for consideration. Sometimes I tend to debate quite aggressively but I welcome ANYONE to explain why my logic regarding the platform war is incorrect. Make no bones about it I will own both platforms but Im VERY impressed with the execution of HD DVD and the thought put into its design and featureset. There is a backing reason for everything I state. I was supporting HD DVD before it shipped and a bunch of people jumped on the bandwagon. Im glad I stuck to my guns on this one. I feel both formats will co-exist for some time but reports of Blu-Ray slaughtering HD DVD were obviously wishful thinking.
