Michael Bay Still Picks Blu-ray Disc!

By Evan Jacobs — October 24th, 2007

Despite record HD-DVD numbers for the Transformers release, Director Michael Bay still picks Blu-ray Disc.

In a story from USA Today, it seems that Bay isn't 100% happy with the Paramount Home Entertainment title.

"It's a good DVD. But not as good as it could have been," he states.

Since it's release the title has sold 8.3 million Standard DVD units and 190,000 HD-DVDs.

The irascible Director didn't stop there. He then went on to give his feelings about the format war and even went another way with his format choice.

"It's short-sighted and it has delayed consumers' moving to HD (home video)," he said about the format war. "As a director, my critical eye is that Blu-ray is where my money is. Consumers are smart, and they are going to wait it out."

In closing, Bay even commented on Transformers 2.

"It just caught on in our culture, and I am excited to do the second one," he offers. "There are so many different and innovative ways you could have fun with this movie."
