Sony having Another Bad Week

This week is turning out to be another difficult one for Sony in both the Blu-Ray and PlayStation 3 fronts. Reactions have ranged from the official to the hilarious, first Universal boss of Home Entertainment has criticized Sony's format and then a European website has launched an all out attack at Sony for the PS3 European launch delay.

Universal President of Home Entertainment, Craig Kornblau, has launched an all-out attack on Sony's Blu-Ray format and speaking at CEDIA EXPO 2006 he said, Look at the blogs, look at the reviews by the early adopters and even look at the mainstream media - HD DVD has maintained its first-to-market advantage and delivered on the promises of providing the best high definition image and sound quality at the best value for consumers today. Take today's announcement of new players from Toshiba, new PC hardware from Niveus and new titles like 'The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,' and add the hardware and movies that are coming this Fall and you can see why HD DVD is poised for a strong holiday.

If the attack on Blu-Ray wasn't enough, the European consumer, disgruntled by Sony's recent delay of the European launch of the PS3, has decided to strike back through a hilarious website called thisiswaiting.com, making light of Sony's European, This Is Living slogan. The website features many retouched images ridiculing the PlayStation 3 and the company's President Ken Kutaragi. The image to your right is part of that website while you can also find such gems as Dude Where's My Diode and How to Lose Europe in 10 Days.

Setting aside price and availability of Blu-Ray, it has much better array of features than HD-DVD. HD-DVD just recycled all the fckups from DVD and Blu-Ray improved upon that to deliver much easier i/o access for programmers as well as multisession support for consumers. Only thing is wrong with it is ridiculous price.

im pretty convinced that blue-ray is better than HDDVD, but im more conviced that HD-DVD will win. it wont matter whats "better" but what will win. BD may have more space, but all the idiots releasing BD are using mpeg2 for no reson. HDDVD is a little more limited on space, so they use H.264. IMO thats what BD needs to be doing more, but they arent.

Anon @ 1:6 your a bit slow mate. so let me spell it out for you. until the studios start using h.264 on blu-ray hd-dvds will be superior picture quality. hd-dvd has support for the newly released audio standards, blu-ray doesn't. so please, enlighten us all with your superior knowledge of why blu-ray is better. don't say space, because no one needs it at the price its at.

Sony is a bad liar. GTA4 wont be PS3 only. Sony was slow releasing Developer kits. Sony lied about production start. Developers dont need/use 25gigs. When was the last time you saw game on more than one Dual Layer DVD? And now they screw the UK. Megagames ragged on M$ before and after the launch of 360. Why should sony get a break? Thats called being fair.

Yeah, bulls**t.If they did, they wouldn't use the "Cost" argument (which is also BS).A lower capacity disc, to any sane human, logicall contains a higher-quality video stream. It's that simple, anyone who thinks otherwise knows nothing about data capacity.I ebt they've ignored the "Native JAVA environment" thing too huh?
