    Not sure if this has been covered.

    http://www.blurayrevolution.co.uk/

    Some interesting info on there, decent FAQ, release dates, opportunity to ask questions etc. Useful for anyone new to BD.

    Very tacky. How not to build a website that people will actually want to use. I'll wait for the cartoon free version (probably a long wait). I have broadband so when I click a link button I want information now, not a 'Loading' sign that sits there for a minute then shows me another useless cartoon.

    3 out of 10 - must try a lot harder. Try employing web designers as opposed to enthusiastic schoolchildren.

    What is it that the BBC know that film studios don't when it comes to building useful websites? :rolleyes:

    LOL it's slower to load than a Toshiba E1! And click on the 'News' link, sums it up for me, 'coming soon'.

    I find the "interactivity section most disturbing"...

    "Can I download New Content from the internet?"
    "Absolutly, as mor BD-J titles are released by the studios, this will become a standard feature"..

    Perhaps someone at Sony forgot to mention this to the other CEs?

    Terrible web site. Pointless graphics and no useful information. I would get more out of a text-only site with actual information on it. :thumbsdow :thumbsdow :thumbsdow

    Did you miss the FAQ then? Bear in mind this site is surely aimed at educating people who haven't got a clue about the format rather than the more clued up who hang out here and discuss 3:2 pulldown etc

    I did not miss the FAQ but (a) I had to wait for more silly graphics before it loaded and (b) it was so basic. But your comment is well taken, if that is where you want to pitch it. If you are involved with the site maybe you should have some different levels of detail in it, maybe purloining techie stuff from here once you have checked it, for a more detailed section.
