Things have just gotten a little more interesting in the ongoing HD format wars. Paramount Pictures/Dreamworks have just announced a surprising decision to side exclusively with….HD DVD!! (This includes releases from DreamWorks Pictures, Paramount Vantage, Nickelodeon Movies and MTV Films) This has come to a shock to many people who’ve been closely following this battle, especially after the recent release of Blu Ray’s 2 to 1 sales numbers. This is obviously a massive gain for the HD DVD camp but in reality, i’m not sure if this holds that much significance. HD is still in it’s infancy, and it’s been much tougher convincing casual movie fans to make the jump. However there’s no denying the fact that HD DVD is now holding an ace up their sleeves that could find a shit load of fanboys passing on Blu Ray; The Transformers. Now HD DVD holds exclusive rights to such upcoming high profile releases as Shrek the 3rd and everybody’s favourite ‘giant fucking robots’ film of the year. But more importantly, they will now exclusively own the Star Trek franchise!!! I’m not going to bother asking what everyone thinks, because I already know. ‘I don’t want to have to re-buy my entire dvd collection! There isn’t much of a difference! Downloading is where it’s at!’ BLAH BLAH BLAH. I have three words for you: HI DEF KHAN.
