BluRay Failing In USA/North America!

...BluRay is sinking into the jaws of Oblivion! Based on info BadAss posted - and the Amazon sales ratings - it seems the Xbox 360 HD DVD addon drive is outselling the PS3 and every other BluRay player. Check the results:

Xbox 360 HD DVD Drive - postion #271 :smashin:

PlayStation 3 - position #365 :thumbsdow

...based on this info BluRay has merely hours - if not minutes to live - all BluRay owners please be aware that your machines will turn into bricks! :eek: Packetfront has dipped in here because his Sony player is bigger and heavier than the Samsung and Panasonic players so can be used more effectively as a door stop. However all must appreciate using BluRay players in this role does create a trip hazard so be sure to apply bright yellow tape to your machine. Thank you.



:cool: Sorry couldn't resist what with Packetfront's amusing posts lately :devil:

Pretty childish to be honest.

Very good, point, However after just spending all day, (well 10am to 3pm) removing then reinstalling all my AV kit, :rolleyes: it did seem like a good idea at the time.... :D And the new rack looks :cool: This is a great bit of lighthearted fun. :clap:

Quite right, the site should be renamed to AVArguments.com ;) :)
In a few years we'll probably all look back and laugh on how we debated whether one 12cm disc is better than another 12cm disc....

...or maybe well all still be here arguing the same points :eek:

Are these comments serious?

Considering the recent threads you've started I don't see how they can be?

PS3 has a sizeable lead over HD-DVD!!

Finally the race is really on, as Sony has finally launched their BDP-S1 Blu-Ray player. This is the Blu-Ray player most people have been waiting for. After the disaster with the crooked Samsung player, the Panasonic and Philips players that no one even knew were there, and after countless delays, the Sony settop player is finally available. Let's hope quantities will be sufficient to fulfill the demand or else I see a somewhat bleak future for Blu-Ray.
With the Playstation 3 in extremely short supply and the settop player being released so late, Sony has essentially missed out on the Christmas Holiday season altogether. By doing so they essentially handed the cake to the HD-DVD camp who has players for as little as $399 in stores now and has not supply shortage.
Why is Sony's launch so important you may wonder? Blu-Ray is a 'Sony' format to begin with and the launch of Blu-Ray without Sony's backing was bad marketing to begin with. As a result many potential adopters were waiting until Sony would launch their player, hoping it would be a high quality player that would make good on the many problems found in other players.
The nasty side-effect of Sony's repeated postponements was that many, many high def fans simply lost patience and switched camps. I know of a great many people who were devoted Blu-Ray proponents 6 months ago, who now own a HD-DVD player. Not only that, they are extremely happy with it and have no immediate ambitions to switch to Blu-Ray any time soon.
It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out in the long run.

source of this ... DVD REVIEW & HIGH DEFINITION.

plenty more of where this come from i have been on 7 hi def websites in the last hour and there is so many like this to choose from ,where do i start im not sure there is enough space on the forum for all the Bad BD reviews posts discusions and threads of soft and hardware alike ;)

is it possible to open a new section dedicated to it :devil: ,this seems what other sites are doing so its easier for people to see rather than just random posting on threads :smashin: ,forums and genuine HD/BD websites have very clear set ups,or alot of it is on the home page.

This is just a taster hopefully we can set a dedicated page but all information must be taken from real websites with links atttached ,it would be a great help for newbies to understand what is happening in the HD world when they come to a forum like this..

No names being mentioned but we see some rather daft threads like the one i have just produced here,even tho this is true the hardcore BD following on this forum (all 2 members) make such post,wonder if they will bite.??

Pathetic to reach this conclusion now - the race has only just begun.

Since when does BD have a following of 2 members?

Sony designed the BDP-S1 and left Pioneer to do the manufacturing. Instead Sony built the PS3, if I'm not mistaken you are waiting for a PS3? So I guess by your own reckoning you will become BD member #3? Congratulations.:clap:

You say information should be taken from real websites and posted with links yet you fail to take your own advice and post quotes from DVD REVIEW & HIGH DEFINITION with no back up.

As for the quote itself, HD-DVD suffers the same diode shortage as does the PS3 and any other BD player. No one is immune to this. That is why Sharp will be producing 500,000 diodes a month for Sony by the end of 2007. Maybe the 360 add-on doesn't suffer such shortages due to it paltry 42k sales at launch.

the xbox-hd-dvd addon would have sold way more at launch actually it has sold more than 42k now way more and would have sold even more if there was not a shortage in the uk. :)

those diodes sharp are making are actually for the ps3 soory no link to prove this , the yare needed for the europe launch in march :).

BTW lets wait untill next year to see how both formats future will look :) i say september next year will show how they are doing :)

Im still hd-dvd for the win.


bdass your grasping at straws with the left hand and thin air with the right :D :D :D :D :D
