Default Re: Onkyo dropping HD-DVD support

Lotus,
I had quit responding to your posts because of your attitude & personal attacks on me but this is just over the top even for you!
After your previous personal attacks on me & this completely biased response towards me in this thread I would rather you just ignore me in the future as I don't care to deal with you.

Onkyo dropping HD DVD is less a deal than RCA not releasing a 2nd Gen player. While it is news, it has very little to do with the war.

"Go back to BR.com"
Oh yea very polite advice there!

Every post of mine in this thread after my original post was to defend from an attack.
Go back & actually read this thread & tell me who is attacking who.
They can't attack the story because it's not something I made up, it's right there in the link so they attack the messenger instead.

That is an attack. She didn't respond to your news, she responded to your rude opinion. Her response was classy in comparison.
No that was not an attack, that was frustration for having to defend myself from attacks for posting a news story!
That is not a rude opinion either, go back in a bunch of these threads & see how many people are complaining about Blu-Ray & how the "better format" is losing.

So because I support Blu-Ray gal decides that I'm therefore banned from ever posting anything in the HD-DVD section even if it applies directly to HD-DVD & then told to "Go back to BR.com" a site I've never been to!
In what bizarro world is this classy?

Then you have a selective memory or you just are not really reading these forums, they are whining that Blu-Ray is doing well!
Ask 1more4HDDVD, he'll tell you the wrong format is winning.
Listen to them talk about profiles, bad transfers, firmware updates, etc, etc, etc ad nauseum because they think HD-DVD was the better format & Blu-Ray shouldn't be winning.
Those "ONE MILLION investors" are upset at the wrong people!
If HD-DVD was the superior format then they need to be upset at Toshiba for blowing it.
Toshiba extended the war last summer by buying off studios when it looked like they were going under, don't complain if Blu-Ray did the same thing!
This was HD-DVD & Toshibas failure, don't blame Blu-Ray & Sony because they did a better job of promoting their format.

For the record, I am not a Blu-Ray fanboy, I am a HDM fan, I didn't care who won this war, I chose to buy Blu-Ray because of the PS3 support which meant I wouldn't be left without a player in a few years because of the requirement that all PS3 games be on Blu-Ray Discs.
If this war had gone the other way I'd have gone & bought a HD-DVD player & started buying HD-DVD movies.
I wouldn't have screamed & yelled that the wrong format won & refuse to buy it & instead wait for HD downloads.

I want HD content & I want it now!
The sooner there is a winner the better, right now that looks like Blu-Ray.
The sooner there is only 1 HD format the better it will be for HDM.
It needs to get widely accepted soon so it can not just survive but thrive alongside DVD & HD downloads.
If Toshiba thinks they can win the war they need to do something & now!
If the know they can't win they need to fold & not hang on out of spite just to cause confusion & destroy HDM.


Now please, feel free to comment on the story & refute it if you can find the facts to back it up but quit attacking the messenger because you don't like what your reading.
