Dirty secret: Microsoft hopes HD DVD will fail, according to Michael Bay

Recommended Videos

Famed director and soiler of childhood memories, Michael Bay, has stated in a forum post on his website that Microsoft has been deliberately spreading confusion in the HD DVD vs. Blu-ray format war, in order to push the world into the age of digital downloads.

In an argument that already feels tired and old barely a year in, Bay is quoted as saying:

“That is why Microsoft is handing out $100 million dollar checks to studios just [to] 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.”

No word yet on Bay’s opinion of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Area 51, or Bigfoot.
