Sony gets classed as the main Blu-ray owner because of the PS3, and they are the loudest one to say about it.

Kijencose...just no lol. There is no need to copy EXACTLY what someone else says...I think you are trying to blend in. I am not stupid lol. If you are going to try then please atleast try harder.

I smell burning spam.

Personally, I'm gonna try my best not to get caught up in all this "disc" business. Outside of making my own personal copies of discs for my own archiving... I doubt that I'd be willing to invest so much money into buying more movie discs in the future. /shrug

to be honest i can see what you mean, there are some DVDs out there that display quality very close to HD, when viewed on a nice high def TV.

but still, i can definitely notice the difference between say 576i and 1080p.. especially in heavy action movies where the scenes flash past very quickly.

i'd like to use RE:Extinction as an example. that on Blu-Ray is amazing. why? coz i can see all the lovely creases in that beautiful womans skin. mmmmm... Milla.

The average DVD here in Australia is anywhere from $20.00 - $25.00, not counting the DVDs initial release date price (usually $30.00 or more). Blu-Rays average $30.00-$35.00. for the extra $10.00, i can honestly justify my purchases completely.



PS... we're sorry Enterprise...we made you mad. hehe

To address something from the first page, satellite can do full 1080p stuff, DishNetwork can anyway for stuff like videos-on-demand, and while I don't know about audio I assume it can come through a good as you want it.

But I do not think that the DishNetworkPVR lets you record videos-on-demand, although I have never tried.

I know were getting more off topic, but is it true 1080p and not just upscaled?

With my Comcast HD On Demand, I can get videos up to 1080i, but they really look more like 480p, just upscaled. The movies don't look bad, but they sure don't look like full-on blu ray or hd dvd.

Yeah unfortunately in some places here some of the High-Def titles IMO are still too pricey to want to touch...not only that but I am sick of rebuilding my collection because of changing formats...I think its wrong to keep chopping and changing lol.

LOL yeah i know what you mean.

im a huge Aliens/Predator fan. like big time.

and i have predator, predator- the 2 disc special edition, predator definitive edition, predator 2, predator 2 collectors, AvP, AvP Definitive Edition, AvP blu-ray. and thank god only one copy of the aliens movies, the Alien Quadrilogy boxset. soon as you rush out and buy one to start a collection, they release a new and better edition with more features..and i always fall prey to it.

and NOW im sure they will release AvP 2 Requiem on blu-ray, so ill have to get that. but its on regular DVD first, so ill prolly be a sucker and get that before the blu-ray ediiton gets released. i havnt seen AvP 2 yet..everyone hates it. but i dont care, im a huge fan, ill love it anyway.

oh and i have 2 copies of the first 2 resident evil movies. DVD and Blu-Ray. could keep goin ay lol.

but i love it, im a hoarder.
