Yes. But was just having some fun.

Oooooo, maybe they could replace the walkie-talkie guns with HD DVD discs to help promote sales?

*phew* thank god for that.
Anyway, taking it as seriously ... no. 1 movie? Sony will pull strings and release a Bond or even try convince New Line to run LoTR.

If we were close to Xmas I would recommend them put them in Xmas crackers. You konw you always get cheap useless junk in crackers. Sadly they missed their time for action. Perhaps in easter eggs instead?

ET would not sell that much. Nowhere near as much as most blockbusters. It may be one of the bigger catalogue releases, but still won't be any insane disk shifter imo.

The only thing that can save HD-DVD is more studio support.

I still think if every studio was neutral, HD-DVD would win it.

None of this is likely to happen, of course.

Looks like we're "stuck" with Blu-ray. Which won't be bad at all once BD starts living up to its promises (with completed profiles and software, etc.)

ya cause all that high quality "pay to download wallpapers on the internet...from the player not your computer" or their shaudy version of PiP that HDDVD has is just SO disappointing to give up amirite.
