Even though Transformers director Michael Bay backed down after bitching about Paramount's choice of HD DVD over Blu-ray for all forthcoming home videos including Transformers, he couldn't hold his tongue for long. He told USA Today that he's pissed about the format war in general, adding specifically:
"As a director, my critical eye is that Blu-ray is where my money is."
He also says the best-selling DVD release of Transformers was "not as good as it could have been." Apparently somebody must've got up on the wrong side of the bed. [USA Today] UPDATE: Whether Bay likes it or not, his Transformers HD DVD just set an HD movie-disc record, selling 190,000 in one week.
