        I was born in the 70s, kid (GenX, not boomer, you dumb kids, look up "baby boomers" and find out when you apply the term "boomer" to someone, your dumb meme just makes you sound stupid). Physical media is dead, thank fuck. Only idiots buy gradually rotting disks in 2021, hell they sucked back when they were new.

                Nobody really cares though, it's not like pirating shit is hard or makes you cool. Lots of stuff I have on vinyl has never, ever been ripped.

                Enjoy them while you can because they'll degrade every time you use them.
                You're not even going to use them are you?

                It takes hundreds of plays for any significant wear to occur and you can always just switch to a microline and boom, good as new.

          Boomer doesn't know what boomer means, nothing new here. GenX is called boomers because they hated boomers, but now they themselves are the boomers.

          Disc rot is a total meme, in reality it's extremely rare to nonexistent.

          anon kids that missed out on the era of physical media don't remember the ever changing compatibility and availability bullshit that anyone who lived through that era understood why it died the second digital content became retard proof

          they just miss the fact that there used to be a level of clear product segmentation because there was greater cost to publishing them that no longer exists. back then things just simply had more money and manpower put into them. do you remember when major releases used to have giant cardboard cutouts in stores? when's the last time you've seen one of those for a B list movie?

          i don't miss it but i kind of do, in a way

            Hifi listeners went straight from vinyl to CD's.

        to make console cheaper

        PS3s were sold at a huge loss initially, even though they cost $599 and the xbox 360 only cost $399.

        >The PS3 with the 60GB hard drive comes with a manufacturing and component bill of $840.35. Since it sells that version of $599, the component bill exceeds the retail price by $241.35

        >The hard-drive-equipped Microsoft game console has a manufacturing and materials cost of $323.30.

      it is honestly pretty interesting how the 90s and early 00s had a serious technology gap between consumer products and the high end that really doesn't exist in the same capacity anymore. it's like the boomers were more than okay with letting the low end stagnate while the high end continued developing right as gen x started to get in charge of things. or maybe that was because of gen x? either way, its absurd people were still be willing to pay $20 for a fucking vhs tape in 2004.

      in middle school in 2007 i was downloading 720p movies off of the pirate bay and i had peers that were still renting vhs tapes from blockbuster

        Why? A decent quality VHS is fine for most people.

        You can't even see the different between SD and HD unless you're sitting closer than two screen diagonals anyway.

    HD DVD is inferior in every aspect. I thought this was a fucking tech board, are all of you this retarded?

    it isn't though, the ONLY thing it had was the option for double the read/write speed, but almost no consumer HD-DVD implementation used this.

    It was inferior in capacity, and had identical codec support for vide/audio.

    HD DVD was 15GB SL and 30GB DL
    Bluray was 25GB SL and 50GB DL

    Bluray won because it had higher density, that's basically it. Also, the PS3 really helped, if xbox 360 had an HD-DVD drive instead of an optional HD-DVD drive add-on for like $150 extra, they probably could've won the format war, or at least made it draw out MUCH longer (HD DVD gave up only 2 years after it was introduced)

      They are extremely popular, streaming services are actually losing customers these days. Everybody saw Seinfeld and Friends again already, new streaming originals aren't compelling.

      Physical media will never become totally obsolete, most of the people who claim it already is are chatbots and viral marketing slaves.
