Michael Bay Exposes Vast Microsoft Conspiracy

The dirty secret no one is talking about.

by | December 7, 2007 | Comments

Have you been holding off on purchasing hi-def components for your home theater because you’re confused by the whole HD DVD vs. Blu-ray conundrum? Michael Bay feels your pain — and he says it’s all Microsoft’s fault.

Crave‘s Ian Morris digs up a post from Bay’s official site in which the director — who famously threatened to withhold Transformers 2 from Paramount as retribution for the studio’s exclusive HD DVD support — tells us that he’s got the format war all figured out. Dig it:

“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 $100m 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.”

See, Bay haters? You’ve got the man all wrong. He isn’t all about explosions and unintentionally humorous dialogue. He’s a consumer crusader — the Ralph Nader of blockbuster movies!
