Talking TOSHIBA QUITS, BLURAY WINS...

the HD format battle...

After several years of rubbing elbows, the HD DVD vs BluRay war has come to this...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080219/.../japan_toshiba

A lot of people invested on each format... and I'm just glad I went blue... I guess, the idea that "Blue is Better" can sometimes be true...

why? i heard there's only a handful of players on the PS3 network. i heard from two my clanmates that there werent many players on. plus with 25+ clanmates on the 360.. our COD4 clan is more fun. plus with Rainbow Six Vegas 2 coming out... the clan will be evenly split between the two games

when i do get a PS3.. it'll strictly be for Final Fantasy gaming..and Blu-Ray viewing.

I think I got up to 13 last night...lol I still suck, but my instincts are good. I just have to get better at using a console control rather than a mouse/keyboard!

But if anyone wants to get SCHOOLED on old school Halo for PC.... just visit our servers. HW 24-7, and there are like 5 of the, all Gulch, all rockets, all the time...

Gundam... that's such a lame excuse... You can always install an LCD slash PS3 setup in that Armada and run a wireless connection via your cell... then you can play COD4 anywhere you go! Oh yeah... and watch BLURAY TOO... (sorry for the effort to get back to topic... haha!)

BTW... congrats on the purchase...

Yeah let's get back on topic........

Since Blue-Ray won the format war, what does that spell for the XOBX 360? Remember, the 360 opted for the HD-DVD format (which those poor 360 fans paid for) and now they are about to run dry, as far as movies are concerned. Soon, Microsoft are going to be like Nintendo back in the day, saying that their console is meant for video games only.......

actually.. i like the route microsoft took. they made their player an external attachment. so if your dvd player takes a sh!t... your game console is still intact. in fact... it was a safe move for MS because now that HD-DVD lost.. they just make another external attachment for Blu-Ray. imagine how many pissed PS3 owners you'd have if Blu-Ray would have lost the format war?

smart thinking and a safe gamble for Microsoft.
