I really think we can disregard this rumor. It is just another stunt to get BD sales going.
Also, there is a retailer that is selling an HD-DVD player with 2 movies in the box, 5 at the door and 5 in the mail TODAY. Funny this comes article comes out today...

That would mean "coming aboard soon."
Lee,
How are you so certain this is crap?? It seems like the strongest rumor we've seen yet, considering the source.. Go ask amir or someone and get a rebuttle quote to sooth our minds!!

Was just loading my latest copy of The Waterlillies cd and found this little tidbit pop up on my computer screen. Hmmm. Seems more and more are picking up on the story.

Ironic that the song playing is Tempted by The Waterlillies (the Inner City Remix version).

Who? PaidGeek? TalkStr8? Peton Man?

What is their position? They sure have enough time to vist forums.

Weinstein - just do a search - it will come up. Right around the time of the Target insider forecast - which if I remember - you were the first to post it.

Yeah, this happens far too much with these techno blog sites though. Then everyone gets dissapointed when nothing happens. As always though, time will tell.

Personally it seems to me with all the recent shouting from both sides, that Warner has given them both "targets" in order to get their exclusivity.

I just did a search. I went through 110 Thread titles and none of them had any claim of an insider saying the Weinstein was going neutral. The closest thing I could find was BiggNewt speculating that it could happen. Either you're making it up or you heard it from Beatboy on AVS because I've never heard a real insider say anything about that before and I read EVERY SINGLE POST by BD insiders.

Beatboy said it. I remember it very clearly. but he often repeats other insider info so I don't know.

All I can say is that there is a big sale today on A3's right?? Well, this certainly deflated all that momentum. Bravo BDA.. which, I hope that is what you're trying to do you snakes!! We need a credible source to either confirm or deny this rumor. It's spreading like wildfire!

paidgeek said that Weinstein was going neutral. His exact quote from BR.com:

Quote:
PaidGeek or Penton-Man,

Bill Hunt mentioned at DigitalBits.com about Weinstein about to go neutral at the end of the year. Have you guys heard anything about this? is there any weight to this rumour at all?


thanks
It seems there is more than a rumor. I can't elaborate, but have some inside information that titles are in the works.

Hmmm. I bet it'll happen at CES then b/c Weinstein doesn't have any title announced before the end of the year.

Paidgeek has never steered me wrong. Paidgeek is gold.

Sorry, I'm multi-tasking here so sometimes it takes me awhile to write a full post.
