Just face it; anybody who has a real technical expertise is going to pick Blu-ray.

Does the Rat Blu-ray use more than 30GB?

Does it use more than HD DVD's bandwidth?

If it does, it is one of the few movies that actually does.

If not, then there is absolutely no reason it wouldn't look exactly as amazing on HD DVD

Actually quite few movies that are Blu-ray only are taking advantage of the higher bitrate and storage capacity. Movies the are transferred to both have to be transferred to the lowest common denominator ( which is HD-DVD )

Now, by taking advantage of, do you just mean provided lossless PCM instead of an encoded lossless?

Can you list any of the movies that have truly used and needed it (this isn't a fanboy attack, but an honest question)?

Yes and my real technical expertise tells me there isn't a difference. And for everyone who says who cares about extras on BD means that if they didn't put the extras on HD we'd have the same flipping movie. I would love for you to sit them side by side and go OOH! LOOK! See the difference? And actually be able to tell.

yes, lets root for the inferior format...........i dont understand HD early adopters. You want the best out there(HD) but you choose the crappier product.

I know this might be difficult but Blu-ray has the greater potential due to its higher bitrate and storage capacity. It has more room to grow when new techniques and enhancements come in compression technology. We have NOT seen all that it can due yet because of this effed-up format war. Why would anyone continue to support HD-DVD; it has already reached its ceiling. Blu-ray has a lot more room to grow.

A Clockwork Orange

And the more the studios try to push the limits of what extras can provide to their audience, the more this kind of thing will occur.
