Gaming News: "It's ALL a Conspiracy!"
Posted: Thursday December 6th, 2007 by

Transformers director Michael Bay has expressed before his preference for the Blu-Ray format. But now he is claiming that Microsoft is intentionally trying to cause confusion between the HD-DVD and Blu-Ray high-def formats. The idea, as he expresses it, is to pay studios to "embrace HD-DVD and not the leading, and superior Blu Ray". This will then give themselves time to perfect digital downloads. And when, as a result of the confusion, both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray formats fail, Microsoft will rush in with plans for high-def digital downloads and save the day.

I don't have a position in the HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray format war. So I don't realy care who comes out on top. And if Microsoft moves to capitalize on a future push toward high-def digital downloads, **shrugs** what do I care? But this overarching conspiracy theory that they are somehow sabotaging the two existing formats in order to rush in when they both fail makes me think that Michael Bay has been breathing in too much of the smoke from the explosions he uses to cover the fact that his movies are otherwise mediocre.

That's not to say I haven't enjoyed his films. I have. I'm just saying he might just be off his freakin' nut.
