    I care about special features. Getting more info and perspectives about a movie is a good thing, not a bad thing.
    Interactive menus and such tells you nothing about the movie, which is was Nasti was talking about. 50 GB means more room for special features anyway .

    Do you really care about what HDi gives you? Interactive menus, Picture-in-Picture, bookmarks, and stuff?

    The Blu-Ray release was slightly inferior to the HD-DVD release for 300, although this says nothing about the format itself.

    Do I have to repeat myself Purple? The interactive features when 300 came out in HD format could only be done on HD-DVD.. Hence HD-DVD is a better format.

    FootKnight - Why not? It has better than SD menus and features that bluray started off with. And why do you say they tell you nothing about the movie?

    What exactly do interactive menus tell you about the movie?

    The extras that came out with the HD-DVD release of 300 were also on the 2-disc DVD set by the way.

    It had certain features like PIP which the BD version didn't have. But again, not many people care about that.

    Go - Yes, I like special features too but the majority of people don't. The movie will be bought no matter what the feature are. People want to watch the movie. Also interactivity doesn't give you more info on the movie. It's a buzz word. So I can go online and buy the pen that Brad Pitt is using. Who cares?

    And I don't know what you mean about inferior technology. Last I checked, all Blu-ray movies came with uncompressed audio because they have the space on the disc. Guess what major HD release doesn't have that feature. Transformers.

    Ever think that I may have responded to your original post prior to my reading of your response to Nasti? You made it sound as if the freaking plastic used in the disc was better or something... Jesus.

    FootKnight - Seeing the feature in PiP gives you a perspective you cannot get with the bluray version.

    Interactive Menus look nicer and are sleeker in getting from one place to another (checking settings, getting into special features). I would call that a better movie watching experience.

    Sorry Purple. I reread what I wrote and I wasn't clear. Also, I thought it was a given people knew this.

    Nasti - And yet Transformers still got 5 out of 5 in sound quality at High Def Digest. The vast majority of people 99% don't even own a system to hear a difference anyway.

    Maybe it's just perspective here, but when I watch a movie, all I want to watch is the movie. I watch all the special features that come with movies, but I cannot think of a time that I have ever desired to watch them at the same time as the movie. Also, interactive menus actually bug me. All I want my menus to do is get me between sub menus and play content, again, just my perspective on that.

    Indeed, I had the opportunity to attend a special 'Transformers' media event with Paramount late last week, and the question was asked almost immediately -- why no Dolby TrueHD or uncompressed PCM? The studio's answer was that due to space limitations on the disc, the decision was made to limit the audio to Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 Surround only (here at 1.5mbps). Unfortunately, this confirms the long-held theory that the 30Gb capacity of an HD-30 dual-layer HD DVD disc has forced studios to choose between offering a robust supplements package (as they've done here) and the very best in audio quality.

    That said, it is hard to imagine any film taking a Dolby Digital-Plus 5.1 Surround track to its zenith better than 'Transformers.'
    That tells me that it could have been better with Dolby TrueHD or uncompressed audio, but they did fantastic with the sound they could fit on it.
