Default Take it easy on the HD DVD camp

Hi Guys,

Been lurking in this site for quite some time now. Great site for researching the blu-ray format and releases. I've been a Sony/Samsung fan (from home entertainment to consoles to even celphones) for along time and have stuck with them due to my personal experience with their quality. I admit i was hesitant with the PS3 because it meant i had to get into this High def format war, but after some research and of course nothing beats actual use, i'm 100% confident that not only did i get a great potential gaming machine but inadvertently became an early adopter to the WINNING next gen format.

During my research though, i saw (and still see, especially with that Bill Hunt report) a lot of flaming from both sides of each camp trying to diss the other. I don't know why we, being the winning side, need to rant on the HD DVD guys. Yes, some of their arguments are so biased and uninformed that it is tempting to retaliate, but i think we really don't need to. How would we feel if we invested between $500-$1,000 or more! of our hard earned cash, only to get the feeling of impending obsolecence by the next year (kinda like i felt with my betamax, lol). Really, i feel for them, I think its only natural for them to defend their choice to let off some steam, so lets please stop dissing them on their own turf or even flaming them when they troll on our turf. Its not cool to kick someone when they're down

Whats to argue? Superior specs (larger storage, longer durability), Greater studio support (Sony, the co-developer of Blu-ray, is also a major studio lol), Greater manufacturer support, and more recent blockbuster titles. These are all HARD FACTS, and both sides know it. I won't even cite sales figures cuz overall they are too small to be relevant at this point.
So relax guys, i was a noob to high def video and i found all this out with simple research, i'm sure many will also.
