Blu-Ray or HD DVD

My opinion...HD DVD will be obsolete. I can see Blu Ray sticking around and becoming the norm here.

And I agree. In the basement with the easy boys and big screen for a movie anytime over the theatre.

I think blu-ray will win. They have done a better job getting themselves out there by putting a player in the PS3. They seem to be getting more of the new release titles too. Far superior to a theater.

Too close to call... pretty even I'd say right now. Bluray has the PS3 trojan horse, whereas HD-DVD has much cheaper (relatively speaking) players.

blue ray is pulling away from hd dvd. its delivers a better picture, it upconverts with minimal flaws, not to mention it has contracted with a majority of the major movie production companies.

My opinion only, but I'd say its a draw for the most part.

Picture Quality: draw - both tend to use highly quality codecs at good bitrates
Sound Quality: draw - Dolby TrueHD (HD-DVD) versus Lossless PCM (Blu-ray)
Number of Signed Studios: Blu-ray advantage
Pricing: HD-DVD advantage
Currently Available Selection of Titles: really poor for both -- draw (really depends on which specific titles you like and want)
Gaming: Blu-ray advantage (PS3)
Interactive Features (e.g., picture in picture commentary, web interactivity, etc.): HD-DVD advantage
Upconversion Quality of Standard DVDs: draw (perhaps a slight advantage for HD-DVD players as a whole)
