Hope not, sick of technology updating. We don't need Blu-Ray disks or whatever.

The Vertigo Tour (ChiTown Show.DVD) was shot in HD and shown on HDNet.

Same here.

Blu-ray is pointless. Picture-wise, it's probably about the same as HD. The only thing good about it is size...

PS3 sales can't go up...it's a bomb. Wii has the innovation, X-Box 360 has all the extra crap, and PS3 has a giant price tag.

And Blu-ray is no doubt at least slightly better...that's why it costs so much more.

PS3 price goes down ---- Blu-Ray sales go up

MSG 4

Wii will fade out..its low graphical capabilities..compared to Xbox 360 & and the PS3 will kill it

We shall see, won't we? All I know is that, from the start, Sony dug themselves into a hole so large I'm sure the makers of the Guinness Book Of World Records would be interested in checking it out.

Blu-ray is HD (High Definition), as is HD-DVD. They both display images at the same high-definition resolutions (720p, 1080i and 1080p) and have the storage space on the discs to carry higher-quality sound. The only real differences between the two formats are the encoding used to store and display the HD images, and the amount of storage space on the physical discs. With identical sound systems, there's almost no discernible visual difference between the two unless you've got a digital projector and a 9-foot screen.

Right now Blu-ray has something like a 5 to 1 install base advantage over HD-DVD, mostly due to PS3's (which should tell you how few HD-DVD players are actually being bought). And with Toshiba and other manufacturers releasing combo players (that play both kinds of discs), it's not likely either side will "win" any time soon.

To be honest, the two formats may be prettier than regular Standard Definition DVD's, and may have more storage space on the discs, but they don't really offer anything new compared to DVD's...kinda like Laserdiscs. I see both High Definition DVD formats meeting the same fate: niche, and never coming anywhere close to being a "standard" or "winner".

The next big "winner" in how we watch movies and such is going to happen when homes get enough cheap bandwidth to be able to stream full HD quality movies over the net, and when the content providers have enough cheap bandwidth to supply them...why bother with physical media when a few button presses on your remote could call up any movie ever made, whenever you want?

R&H has been released in Blu-ray format, and the HD-DVD version is planned but not yet released.
