Another example of how lame format wars are. The battle between HD DVD and Blu-ray is beginning to cause grief between the studios and their talent. After announcing that Paramount would support HD DVD exclusively yesterday, Michael Bay, in a move that might be considered childish, responded by announcing that he would not do a sequel for Transformers.

Transformers Sequel a No for Single Format

Lame. I know Michael Bay thinks he is sticking to some sort of principle, but Transformers isn't the only title out there that is exclusive to one format or the other; Fox released their Blu-ray exclusive titles yesterday. Who is Bay going to work for if more camps get pushed into favoring a single format? Here is what the director posted on ShootfortheEdit:

I want people to see my movies in the best formats possible. For them to deny people who have Blu-ray sucks! They were progressive by having two formats. No Transformers 2 for me!


If other big directors begin following this principle we could have no directors in no time. Imagine that, a director's strike not because of payment or the studios, but because of the type of DVD.

Stupid, I know, but not as stupid as a prolonged format war.

You decide.
