Target has doubled the space for blu ray. Hd dvd is weak because toshiba is selling at a loss. Standalone blu ray players make profits. MS will lose in the longrun. Blu Ray has the most blockbusters this year and will win xmas. MS price cut was not enough, at all.

Than toshiba has already lost it's important for toshiba that HDDVD wins,all the movies that are released on both format like 300 or The Departed have been selling more on Bluray since the hddvd installed base is miserable

According to you, HD DVD is already dead. ;)

This Xmas07 season will show what's going to happen on whether or not dual formats will be the norm. To me, if they coexist (something I've mentioned a few times and was shunned since HD DVD is "dead") this is more of a loss to Sony since it's been estimated they paid quite a bit of money for studios to go exclusive/neutral, stores to promote, etc.
