Thumbs down First piracy of HD DVD has come out in China

That is Transformers.


the back:


And their people are now discussing which HD DVDs to make next.They claim they can copy the content of BDs onto HD DVDs

Many Chinese guys are talking about how to get a toshiba A30 or A35, since their local HD DVD players won't come in the market until March.

In fact, they prefer bootlegs to the decent ones because of the low price and the Chinese subtitle (maybe the key thing)

Seems HD DVD will have a long life in China.

China is the global king of media piracy! HDDVD can sell a gazillion players, they will never translate to REAL sales, not when you can buy the same $30 movie for a buck

No, this one was made in factory, and the copies should be above a thousand

Does anybody notice that it says

"3 Disc HD-DVD Set"

The only reason I can come up with, is they broke the movie down to two 15GB discs, and one 15GB with the bonus disc.

Yeah, I'm sure the CEs are going to jump all over a format which can't sell any disks in the US because it has no studio support and the only movies are pirated.
