BD can handle all the same codecs as HDDVD, just that it can hold more data, which with a longer film is very important.
Being able to support MPEG2 1440x1080/50i to me is very important.
Home burnt from HDV
I think the DVD part of HD-DVD was a trick by Toshiba to get it accepted by more people.
HD-DVD was smaller capacity and not as tough
Disc full of games.
Lets look at my latest purchase
Limits of graphics pushed - yes for console
Story - definately - very emotional
Lots of guns - no
Short SP - 8 hours in and no where near end
Hard - very
But produced by a Sony owned studio.
At least have always aimed to be better than the opposition.
But think CD was a huge success.
Beta was better.
Never heard Elcassete or whatever it is called but supposed to be good.
ATRAC was a good audio compression algorithm
BluRay is more future proof than HD-DVD
Sony have developed a lot of good formats.
I hate MP3s but I own a few SACDs and DVD-A
This annoyed me!
A game I play, on the forums, a new person posted that they wanted to play the game but there was too much swearing. He asked for the next game to have all swearing removed.
He hated curse words, but did not mind the shooting, the gouging of eyes, the bloodshed ect.
Lets just say he had the piss ripped out of him. Especaily when when he said that he routed his interent via a clean feed system. He was also anti porn and nudity.
Why did he want to play a shooting game?
Remember to pronouch Penistone with a hard E.
Secret hovervan works
No it isn't full of antibiotics and hormones.
They are expensive and can be dangerous, antibiotics are only used when an animal is ill.

Also evolved to be very good at breaking down meat
I like telling them about Freesat.
I chatted for ages to a Sky salesman trying to sell me their PVR. After the call he was an expert in Freeview PVRs.
I even tried Ondigital (IDTV subrscription)
They pushed for it
Cameron is a twat
Written by a centre right voter who could never vote Labour (TSR2)
I would prefer BSI
Now that does matter to a lot of people.
Also important for developers, cannot code when overheating.
Just that I have 3 PCs under my desk (2 working, XP and 7, 98 just sits there), and despite the XP being a celeryon and slow it heats my legs.
My quad core 7 is not as hot.
My old 10 year old home PC P4 I used at work for a while after the last work PC blew up, was much faster than the celeryon, it (celeryon) moved to my desk after its previous user left. it is used for XP tasks.
Older BMWs OK
Top end BMWs OK
Cheap news ones BMW or Audi, knobs
I know a P reg 318is owner and a 3 series coupe owner, and they notice this as well
Driving on the Mway and a BMW slotted itself into the gap between me and the car infront. There was not enough room!
Of course a bottom of range 5 series.
Actually BMW driving like a prat = bottom end model
They are more interesting.
Following a trailer full, watching them fall off on a bump and the locals run out and collect them!
More exciting than football
On consoles - we have erm 14 different ones. None of them will stop playing games due to external reasons. Except of course multiplayers.
The console we have preordered is the same.
Why would I want a console which could lose games?
Make it easy to play a game, make it easy to buy and sell, and people will buy you console. Make it diffcult and people will check the competition.
Sony showed really good sense with the PS4, They interviewed the developers, they investigated architectures, they have gone into the next generation with thoughts of the PS1 and PS2 eras.
One final thing, console dominance does not matter as much as you think, because there will be a huge number of games to play - remember PS2 era?
So what have you done to deserve an XBone?
Have you been naughty?
Have you been evil?
If not, you don't deserve one.
You deserve a PS4
But they were only hour long demos
Not many XB exclusives I actually want, but this generation ME came, Bioshock came, and latest Bioshock Infinite PS3 is great (Move support).
Now the one XB series I have wanted to try, the publishers have gone multiplatform, so I will get Destiny, on PS4.
First games will be Watch Dogs, Destiny, KZ Shadow Fall, Order 1886. Now how can that go wrong?
And we only went PS3 since we had a PS2
Is it knobbled for FF?
What is the betting they all work for Sony.
<-------They are being trolled!
I have seen uptimes over a year for 3.12, 4.11, 4.2, and various 5
I had to write a standalone printer handler, Netware was easy I had a library, then of course I could also use capture.
Windows - 3 printers only from DOS.
What a mess
We also had high uptime customers
Fast reliable trustable and worked
Used it with ADS as a dataserver
Replaced a few with Netware Servers
Not man carrying though
I remember - the weaponised giant Scuttle.
The small Scuttle was a very fast walker
I received a Vita - I was happy to get a gadget!
Set it up YEARS ago before I had an ISP. My internet access was VERY naughty. Our ISDN work ISP did not check originating number, so I used that, free internet, but high line rental (paid by work). My boss did too.
Now have ISP account, a hotmail, a work, and personals on my own domains.
The hotmail was the easiest web account to use.
It is still Hotmail, just with a silly skin.
Gone pretty pants since it changed.
Quite happy to only get that.
That music torrent it not bloody I tunes
Where was Piece of Shit?
Trolling I knew
I wonder if they would take NT membership cards?
Sounds like Harri and Dors
Would rather have another child than my bits chopped around.
My wife would not mind a no. 4, nor would the twins. Daughter doesn't like the idea as her room would get used!
I have joked that we could level the playing field, (chavs outbreeding the clever people). Eldest is down for 5 A levels.
Best thing is not to get involved, it is going to go pear shaped, someone will be worse off regardless of outcome so just do not get involved.
Good job we have the best subs
All the twats on twitter about it from MS ended with the letters PS
They forgot the 4
Sorry only got a 6x8 tongue and groove one

75th anniversary of Mallard's 126mph run
To some of us it is a V bomber!
Trains have guards though.
Still looking for an orchestra on a bus as well!
WTF is a train conductor, I didn't know they now had orchestras!
An airliner capable of out running most jet fighters.
Can any do the whole Atlantic at Mach 2?
