HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray: Deja Vu All Over Again

Posted by Nathaniel at 2:12 PM
TechnologyJust like the VHS vs BetaMax war of the 80s--which VHS ultimately won (supposedly largely due to the prevalence of pornography, though who can say for sure)--the battle still rages on in the next generation of media. This go around Sony is still involved, touting their Blu-Ray format. Their rival in this market is Toshiba's HD DVD format. Both formats have their pros and cons, and according to this Yahoo! news article, talks between Toshiba and Sony that could have potentially prematurely ended the upcoming format war have failed with no resolution but another pitched consumer battle.

Do you have an opinion on the next generation media format? Leave a comment and let's yell at each other for no reason whatsoever!

To the arenas!
