This just in: Bogopolis.com declares the Blu-Ray high definition format the winner.
The New York Times is reporting that Warner Brothers will switch their high definition video format to Blu-Ray beginning in June of 2008.
You should care because of this simple fact: Blu-Ray is now in place to replace the DVD format as the default video format – it will happen slowly, but I say this: 8 year olds in 2010 will not recognize the acronym DVD.
Also, the transition of Warner Brothers to Blu-Ray format means that the remaining studios will eventually follow (it’s only a matter of how they save face).
Most importantly users will benefit with increased content (read: 5 times more space for extras and movie goodness – and higher picture quality.
Don’t buy that player, yet, though. The early adopters always get screwed.
