Default Blu-ray Backers Launch New High-Def Website

Just posted:

Quote:
In a unique marketing move, several major Blu-ray-backing studios have teamed up to create a new consumer-focused content site, Hollywood in Hi-Def.

At first glance, the just-launched website would appear to be about high-def discs in general, but upon closer inspection, Hollywood in Hi-Def's mix of original content and links to news and reviews from other sites (including this one) is laser-focused on the Blu-ray format only.

This is very nice for Blu-Ray. I wish HD-DVD would offer something along these lines. To be perfectly honest, HD's site blows. and blows hard. Kudos to Blu-Ray for trying to offer a better web experience.

I like that we don't have to sit through trailers and flash animation like so many of the studio sites. That gets old immediately.

This website is a very original Joke. It's a pro blu-ray website and they are giving me a review of a BD discs? . Oh I will trust that opinion with my eyes covered. If I am to jump sides that is the last place on the internet I will go.

How bout releasing some movies first (cough Fox, Disney) instead of spending time on creating these websites.

Yeah, that's kind of lame, but I still think HD-DvD needs to totally revamp its website. It looks like it hasn't changed since the day it was launched.

Unfortunately, the lay person might not know this much about format wars just go to the website and go blu. If they market this site correctly, even though it is heavily biased, it will do it's share of business.

i like the fact that there are interviews conducted with jerry bruckheimer but he mentions that ppl don't understand High Def stuff, especially those that are not on blu-ray side?

that's just pure stupidity to me.

thumbs down to bruckheimer. WTF




glad we have highdefdigest.com

i click this site 100 times a day.

Well sometimes people review movies for their actual content, not just how well the picture and sound quality stacks up against the competing format?
