Woohoo, HD DVD slides a victory over Blu-ray! Ok, it involves Harry Potter, so perhaps isn’t *much* of a victory, but nonetheless! A victory! Break open the cava!
Apparently the forthcoming HD DVD Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix disc will give watchers Live Community Screening functionality, which, believe it or not, will allow them to watch it at the same time as other people, and live-chat.
I think several Harry Potter fans just creamed their pants upon hearing that. Try and hold on until December the 11th, dear readers, you’ll need some clean pants for then.
