Default European Blu-ray Chairman calls HD DVD Group's actions "unbelievable"

Quote:
While it's not exactly a surprise that the Blu-ray folks are getting in yet another tussle with their counterparts in the HD DVD camp, the latest comments by the Blu-Ray Disc Association's European Chariman Frank Simonis do up the ante quite a bit, with some alleged misrepresentation of data on the HD DVD Group's part drawing most of his ire. More specifically, according to Tech.co.uk, Simonis is upset at the significantly higher "attach rate" that the European HD DVD Group recently touted, which Simonis now says was a "gross misrepresentation of data." Simonis goes on to claim that the HD DVD Group "manipulated" the data, adding that, "you can see this because they did not even supply access to the original source of their numbers." As if that wasn't enough, he then further slams the HD DVD folks by saying, "Honest to God, the Blu-ray Disc Association would never do this. We've seen so much rubbish come from the HD DVD Group it's unbelievable."
Seems like someones hurt.

I don't understand why the HD DVD group bothers with the numbers. There is so much other info that would help.

Why not discuss how blu-ray players today cost more than HD DVD players, yet they don't support the same features. And how the standalone's never will and how the BDA is just trying to be quiet about this and deceive customers. Seems like a much better move.

I agree! This is the route that should be taken by the HD DVD group. The BDA would not be able to defend them selfs without looking foolish!

Does the Blu-Ray Disc Association always Flat Out Lie about crap like this? They are the original perpetrators to come out with complete FUD & garbage talk with non-factual & manipulative info to completely favour Blu-Ray regardless of the truth.

Blu-Ray Disc Association makes me LMFHO

Remember folks the focus of this war is on DVD not Blu-Ray! Let the Blu-Ray camp whine like children, when they hear news that they do not like. They seem to crow just as loudly when there is a Blu-Ray accomplishment.

Both HD camps will some day have to account for, and potentially pay for, their respective war time atrocities!

If the HD-DVD-A lied about the attatch ratio, then why don't the BDA blokes tell us what the REAL attatch ratios are? Even if the HD-DVD-A manipulated the data, it sounds like the BDA arn't offering their own numbers because they know that it still makes them look really bad.
