    Bluray Lies

    Recently, Evil Avatar ran a story about how the upcoming Blu-Ray
    format for HD movies was preferred by consumers.

    GameSpot looked into the study in this week's Rumor Control column and
    found the following:

    * The survey was funded by the Blu-Ray association.
    * When asking for the data, GameSpot was only provided with a
    small sample of incomplete data that compared Blu-Ray features against
    current DVDs, not HD-DVDs.
    * Consumers were told to assume the price would be the same, when
    in fact Blu-Ray discs are expected to sell for at least $10 more than
    current DVDs.

    Quote:
    But there was no such question about whether people would prefer a
    format that makes the discs $10 more expensive or just 10 percent more
    expensive, as is expected with HD-DVDs.
    If the above price estimates are correct, a $20 DVD would equate to a
    $22 HD-DVD and a $30 Blu-Ray disc.

    Looks like this whole survey is a shady steaming sack of lies from the
    Blu-Ray association being foisted on us as a scientific survey.

    All they had to do with the SHEEP was tell them blue ray is 50gb
    instead of just 35gb and that's better because it's bigger.
    Sheep always believe that, witness the continued megapixel wars in
    digital cameras. Blu-Ray should DIE for one good reason; It's too
    different from DVD. Then next storage format should and will look
    nothing like DVD and will hold FAR more data than HD-DVD or Blu-Ray.
    In the meantime, the most logical extension of the current DVD format
    is one that has technology that doesn't diverge so hugely, so HD-DVD
    should be the choice and not Blu-Ray.
