The Consequences of the High Definition DVD Format War

September 20, 2007

The main effect of the "format war" between HD DVD Blu-Ray is that I no longer buy any DVDs.

I have no desire to buy a movie in the old DVD format because I will probably ultimately want to get the high definition version and that would be throwing money away on soon to be obsolete media.

I have no desire to buy a movie in HD DVD or Blu-Ray for fear that I will be left with media that will be obsolete. It doesn’t help that there is no implementation managed copy (which would let me rip the media to our Media Center Server) yet either!

So I buy nothing and rent movies instead. I suspect I am not alone in this.
