Michael Bay knew Blu-ray was gonna win all along


Just a friendly “told you so” from Michael Bay to all y’all.

Bay, whose movies have brought perpetual peace to Earth, was a vocal proponent of the Blu-ray format, so much so that he threatened to walk out of Transformers 2 if Transformers was only released on HD DVD, a statement he later retracted. Said Bay, “Am I thrilled? It really wasn’t my fight, but remember what I said in the press? I was kind of saying HD [DVD]’s going to lose… No one believed me”

So he picked the correct format out of a total choice of two. Bravo. (Even though plain jane DVD is still on top, as Mr. Joel Johnson’s amazing chart points out.)

So yeah, Bay got the Blu-ray prediction right. So did every other 15-year-old on every message board ever.
