So now mainstream cinema is supporting Blu-ray and indie films are with HD DVD. The battle is getting more and more interesting.

As an HD DVD fan, it’s nice that we’ll have 1,000 extra indie films available, but I don’t think it will have much of an impact for the average consumer. Certainly this attests to the fact that HD DVDs are far easier and cheaper to produce than Blu-ray discs.

The best way Microsoft can help HD DVD is to lower the Xbox drive to $99, they would double the install base. How about an E3 announcement next week???

You got Amazon.com to support you, I think it's huge.
