The BD versus HD-DVD war of the words continues. Microsoft says HD-DVD manages better storage, Dell says that's a load of MSCrap. Now Microsoft clarifies, saying that HD-DVD will be ready with 30GB now:
The claim that BD 50GB disc is "many years" away seems to fly a bit into the face of logic. Plus, there's still the fact that Sony plans on shipping the PS3 with a BD drive while Microsoft felt forced to delay HD-DVD capacity with the 360 (but ... I thought it was ready today?).
In other words, there will probably be more mudslinging like this from either camp. Mostly stuff your average consumer couldn't really give two beans about. VHS taught us simply - the first one to achieve a sizeable marketshare is likely to be the one to stay. Course, DVDs have become less and less profitable for movie studios, so you really think a universal standard would be beneficial to the whole industry in order to produce a replacement as soon as possible.
Ah, who am I kidding. They'll just blame their lack of profits on pirates as usual.
