80% for Blu Ray - 20% for HD DVD and nothing but a 'Portugal are gonna kick arse' to Ben
There you go - the Blu Rays have it!
OK - my two cents on why Blu Ray has to win.
Simply put - this format war is not just about video (as was the war between VHS and Betamax)... it's also about Data Capacity... and Blu Ray's got more. Which also mean EXTRA stuff on the video releases... like Special Effects features etc... you know how I LOVE the extras (when they mean something).
In brief - I hope that when the dust settles it's Blu Ray that's left standing!
