China Film Group and Xperinet goes Blu-ray exclusive
Posted by XanTium | 2-9-2007 0:01 EST

 
From timesonline.co.uk:


The increasingly dirty technology war being fought for dominance of "next generation" DVDs took another twist today when one of China's largest film distribution groups said it would back Blu-ray, the technology developed by Sony and Philips.

China Film Group, in addition to producing movies such as Kung Fu Hustle and a range of popular film and TV series for its domestic market, plays a central role in the distribution of foreign films in China, acting as a de-facto regulator.
Analysts said that China Film Group's move was evidence that the struggle between Blu-ray discs and the rival format, HD-DVD, would be heavily influenced by the choices of content providers and consumers in Asia.


From ps3fanboy.com:


Xperinet has announced their full support for the Blu-ray format recently. This company previously worked on both formats, but has decided to go exclusive with the Blu. We're not trying to make this seem as big a deal as the Paramount/Dreamworks defection, but it's still another company we can welcome into our fold, give them a soft bathrobe, and play classical music to. For those not in the know, like us, Xperinet creates media servers that network all your home entertainment together -- for example, storing DVDs onto its hard drive for viewing on any TV in your house. Now they plan to do that with Blu-ray.

Why is every news story about the PS3 about the blueray format. Is the PS3 Just a blueray movie player and not a gaming machine? At least the 360 is focused on games not playing movies. I'm strarting to think that Sony has been blown out of the water by the Wii success and 360 game exclusives.......There are going to be cheap ass blueray and HD players coming out on the market which will once again make the pS3 look expensive as a movie player.

I feel sorry for those who own a Ps3 and have to wait until mid 2008 for new games & pay $50.00 for a blueray movie.....You guys are being really ripped-off.

I certainly don't pay $50 for any blu-ray movies. While I don't appreciate the game selection at all, the PS3 does everything else really well. We're not being 'ripped off'.

The news stories in this part are about Blu-Ray because this particular section is the Multimedia and Blu-Ray section for the PS3. what did you expect in here?
Don't feel sorry for PS3 owners. I have one and have a large collection of Movies as well. 17.99 I payed for most of mine with some at 13.99. There are at least 8 definite titles coming between now and Nov 30 that i am buying games wise. I don't feel ripped off at all.

I think he meant 'why is every story on the ps3-scene.com homepage about Blu-Ray?'. And I agree with him, but you probably already knew that much. It's just a shame there is so little other interesting PS3 news...

He must have mean't in this section as this is where the reply was. He never mentioned the separate news page. Having said that
Blu-Ray news is related to the PS3. The PS3 is actually a full featured BR player. Often people think the only news regarding the PS3 should be related to games. The PS3 is not merely a games machine. At the moment it will be another 3 to 4 weeks before the games start rolling out that may be of more interest.
Sony has started very slow with the games. Time will tell if they pick up the pace.
If you wish to read more games related news, then obviously the main Xbox news page is the route to follow
