View Full Version : Why Microsoft Hates Blu-ray

An anonymous reader writes "The private feud just became public. Apparently, Gates yelled at Sony's CEO (http://www.businessweek.com/technology/content/oct2005/tc2005106_9074_tc024.htm) because the new copy protection Blu-ray has adopted would prevent players from streaming content to the Xbox 360. Since the PS3 will have Blu-ray support but the Xbox 360 only has a plain DVD drive, this means PS3 will be the only console that can play HD movies. Also, Paramount just announced support for Blu-ray and Warner Brothers may also jump ship (http://www.businessweek.com/technology/content/oct2005/tc2005105_6128_tc024.htm) . Will VHS vs. Betamax turn out differently this time?"

Easier to manufacture and familiar name identity (but that's all in what you make it).

presumably HD-DVD would be cheaper because it doesn't have stupid cartridges
