I believe HD-DVD should go for movies and entertainment industry while Blu-Ray conquers the computer industry with its massive storage. Think about it...backing up you intire HD onto a disc. Heck Time Machine to a Blu-Ray disc would be cool but involve maybe an external player not a HD case. But its removable storage so there is pros and cons to each. HD-DVD players can still play regular DVDs (dont know about Blu-Ray players yet correct me if im wrong) so theres no transfering from DVD to Blu-Ray sorta like VHS to DVD (VHS vs. Betamax war all over agian).
my opinion, bluray. over the past week warner announced that it is going bluray exclusive and reports are indicating that paramount and universal are set to jump ship in the near future too. dont quote me on this but i believe bluray has like a 70-75% market share when it comes to exclusive movie titles coming out. that said im still holding off a little longer just incase.
I've never been a fan of the extra features on DVDs. Not because I have a reason to dislike the features themselves, but 99% of the time I'm just not that interested in them. If I'm buying a DVD of a show or movie that I'm a massive fan of, then fair enough, I want behind the scenes stuff and whatnot. Star Wars, LOTR etc. I think the extras are made for stuff like that. But run of the mill flicks just don't need them. Anything more than outtakes (bloopers) are wasted on me. I think they just put them in to justify hiking the price of DVDs over and above VHS tapes. A VHS costs way more to manufacture and duplicate.
