Default Re: Rumor: Universal Next Studio to go all Blu-ray

I bet if Mictosoft paid to have it released in HD - they would bend.
They certainly gave it a try before CES.

As for HD DVD,

why are folks still suggesting that MS has loyalty?

MS only wants three things out of HDM:

1. royalties from codecs and HDi (BD and HD DVD both do the first, HD DVD does the second)
2. low-bit-rate video encoding experience to pave the way for download HD
3. Keep both formats alive to confuse the marketplace as long as possible so that neither format really gain a foothold.

And to clarify before the rumors start to spread as I'm sure that they will, Microsoft will not be buying MGM to add a new HD DVD studio.
