In case you were wondering which format provides the best HD movie experience, CNET’s Crave blog has compared how “Avatar” in HD looks via Blu-ray disc ($25 – currently $19.99 @ Amazon), VUDU HDX ($24.99), and PlayStation Store download ($19.99) on Sony’s PS3. No surprise… Blu-ray took the crown in overall quality. Blu-ray also offered the highest quality movie extras — though VUDU, with 20th Century Fox’s permission, provided extras in SD as promotional material at no charge to all users of the service. Sony’s PlayStation Store offering beat out the competition for being the least expensive HD purchase, but its video “exhibited a somewhat softer look than either” and included no extras. A screenshot of VUDU’s extras menu is attached below, in case you’re curious what the new feature looks like.
