Michael Bay reminds everyone he was right about HD DVD and Blu-ray from the start

“Blu-ray’s better, and I told everyone … I was very vocal about it. I knew HD [DVD] was not going to make it. Am I thrilled? It really wasn’t my fight, but remember what I said in the press? I was kind of saying HD [DVD]’s going to lose, no-one believed me.”

Director Bay has always spoken out about his preference of the Blu-ray format, since before his Transformers film from 2007 was released exclusively on HD DVD.

“I want people to see my movies in the best formats possible. For them to deny people who have Blu-ray sucks!”, he commented in August on his personal blog, however the next day showed that post to have mysteriously vanished, with a statement up instead claiming he’d ‘overreacted’, and that he’d seen “300 on HD-DVD, it rocks! So I think I might be back on to do Transformers 2!”.

According to IMDB, he is indeed.

  • Michael Bay is a tool.

    Yes, Mr. Bay, you were right. Congratulations on making the obvious choice between two formats. I mean, with odds like 50/50, how did you ever pull it off? You’re a genius! I’m listening to you for all of my electronics needs now!

    Now STFU, quit stroking your over-inflated ego, and get back to making movies.

    There is no difference between a hd-dvd and blu-ray movie, because both formats can store the same file (if same codec used) !!! It just about medium (interactivity and evolutivity of both formats are now the same, thanks to the BD 2.0 profile)

    It’s true that blu-ray allow more stuff due to it’s storage capability (about 50Go for BD and only 30Go for hd-dvd) but when you know that a 1080p movie is about 20Go …

    So, now we know in which format we have to jump …
