    I just formatted a floppy in my MPC2000, please keep your gay opinions to yourself.

    Also studios have been trying to force people to buy DVDs by only releasing Blu-Rays for a long time after home media of something is released, or forcing you to buy both Blu-Ray and DVD in one box. Streaming is hugely popular though too.

            has nothing to do with zoomer etc. I just never had a saturn, literally nobody in the EU had this low tier trash.

            Pressed discs can easily last 50 years.
            My CD music collection that goes back to the 80s and PS1 games from the 90s still work perfectly.
            My backups I burnt all the way back since 2001 still work as well.

            got some too which still work but there were so many burned discs back in the day, good they are gone, do you remember how many you burned and they didn't work? yes, wasted plastic.

            I have two copies of the first CD ever printed commercially (it was a sampler disc included with the Philips CD1000) and both are perfect. Disc defects happen with all formats and are almost always because of a contaminant in the production process. They are not common at ALL.

            I have original CDs here from their release date like Tiamat's Wildhoney here, they work yes, but the originals aren't the bad ones I was talking about, it all started with the burning stuff, many CDs were trash, mass plastic production etc. if you know what I mean.

          There's a huge difference between something thats made to use only once and something that lasts decades.
          Also oil is good, it's how we even manage to live in a modern society.

    DVDs are limited to 480p, which is unsatisfactory in a time where many people have 4K displays and 1080p is considered the standard resolution for everyday content.

      You can't see more than NTSC resolution unless you sit too close to the screen anyway, it was scientifically designed to be all you ever needed.

      This isn't an opinion, it's a scientific fact for people even with 20/20 vision. I can provide sources.

    Also Blu-Ray is dying faster than DVDs, the last commercial manufacturer of Blu-Ray drives suitable for consumer devices (not burner drives, players) stopped making Blu-Ray player mechanisms entirely at the end of 2023, saying they have enough on stock for "all projected needs" for the life of the format, and that once they're out they don't expect to make a new player.

    There is only one Blu-Ray drive maker making new Blu-Ray drives, that's Toshiba, and they make only a burner mechanism, not the cheaper player mechanisms. Blu-Ray is literally dead.

    OTOH there is a healthy market of commercial DVD player mechanisms, ensuring the format will indeed win over Blu-Ray.

      blu-ray priced themselves out of the market.

      A DVD burner can be readily had for $5, but blu-ray has always been at least $50. I occasionally (very rarely) need a dvd for something but I am unwilling to invest 10X just for this meme format

          I could explain it to you scientifically but you're too thick to bother with. Needless to say if you sit with a picture taking up too wide of your field of view, you have to either rotate your eyeballs too much OR crane your neck leaving you fatigued, and unable to process the entire shown image all at once because you have to scan back and forth over it to see the whole thing, making your eyes AND brain work at a non-ergonomic clip.

          You should only behold things in the core of your field of view, called the zone, and outside of that there is the "field" where you can see some detail, but not full because of the shape of your cornea, and outside that is "the zone" where it's just blobs of shape and color.

          Any more detail would be wasted on the likes of you but I'm hoping lurkers will look all this up, it's known standard psychovisual technology.
