What's a day without a format war story?

The folks at DVD Town have found a post from director Michael Bay about the ongoing format war on his official website ShootForTheEdit.com. Bay was responding to a question from someone who was dissapointed that his films were released in HD DVD and not Blu-Ray.

"What you don't understand is corporate politics. Microsoft wants both formats to fail so they can be heroes and make the world move to digital downloads. That is the dirty secret no one is talking about. That is why Microsoft is handing out $100 million dollar checks to studios just embrace the HD DVD and not the leading, and superior Blu Ray. They want confusion in the market until they perfect the digital downloads. Time will tell and you will see the truth."
