Gloating victor Sony has offered owners of HD-DVD devices €150 off the purchase of Blu-ray high-definition DVD players. Last month, Toshiba conceded defeat after Time Warner decamped to throw its lot in with Blu-ray. Last night, Toshiba said profits will fall 31pc on the back of the high-def DVD defeat, as well as falling demand for flash memory.

€150 Off New BD Players ? Thats pretty good.

Sounds more like desperation, and bad business. If Blu-Ray has "won", why do they feel the need to do this?

To get more consumers to buy a blu-ray player!

and

its not desperation, and bad business since they have won the format war, meaning they can cut the price (since production cost have lowered im guessing) and the only HD format availible!

It'd be desperation if they lost the war. But they didn't, and by offering those people discounts on BR players they're shifting them over and they'll still make money.

Truer words have never been spoken, Ken. Nicely said.

I bet that people that are buying the new console in Europe after the price cut are also getting the HD-DVD addon.

It just seems like something BOTS would do.

Maybe they don't know the war is over the same way they don't know that there is a 70% chance their console dies within the first year.

Hail BOTS, they are just amusing.

It will be a Merry Dance!!! ;-D
