I don't want to boy cott. I need it on Blu Ray not HD DVD though.

Wait a couple years and it will be on Blue-ray when they win the war. Transformers 2 will be released on Blu-ray, just wait and see.

They aren't wasting any time in cashing in on this movie on the home theater front. Didn't I hear something somewhere about an extended version being done for this in Imax? Regardless, I'll bet $150 million that in the next year and a half we'll see the extended rape my wallet edition come out.

I wonder (hope they do) if those web based sections of the HD-DVD will work on my 360 since it's conected to Xbox Live.

Yeah Ghidrah (love the name by the way!), Transformers is supposed to be released to IMAX at the end of this month...only two or so weeks before the DVD release! Kind of crazy if you ask me...you'd think it would interfere with the ticket sales, with people knowing it's coming to DVD so soon afterwards. It will probably be a VERY limited run though. I'm sure there will be some "Allspark Edition" or something that comes out on DVD right before the sequel is released...featuring the extended version plus a ticket or "movie cash" to see the second one with. Oh well...I loved it enough to have two versions.

I await the duo players. Damn this war!

Listen, I agree with all who side with Blu-Ray over HD, if only because I had the PS3 early and found the picture and sound phenomenal and the disc space greater (50Gb vs 30, dual layer)- I still broke down and got the 360 with the HD-DVD player, if only to miss nothing... and for the games. That being said, this movie is a bloated mess for which I see no justification. Why do you love it so? I saw it in a matinée after a night shift, where I was struggling to stay awake thru the thrilling final battle. This made me want to go back again while fully rested and hyped, but I found that I was falling asleep anyway because nobody could tell what is happening onscreen anyway. It had too many characters that were not half-fleshed out, aside from the kid, and they made us wait an hour to show us the Autobots and then rewarded our patience with horrible dialog and ultra-blurry battle sequences. After the initial intros, could anybody tell which autobot or decepticon is which, and did anybody care??? I am not usually this harsh with summer popcorn fare, but this was a massive dissapointment.

"If Blu Ray is up 2:1 why would they go with HD DVD?" Because Paramount and Dreamworks were willing to accept $150 million in checks from MS to go HD-DVD exclusive. What I'm surprised nobody else has pointed out so far is the turn around time for this movie from theatre to DVD: only 3.5 months.

I'll buy the special edition DVD minus the HD fanfare....it was a good movie, but unless I'm about to build one...I don't need the HD Version
