I just want one to win sooner than later. The longer this format war goes on the harder it will be on the consumer. In some respects I kinda hope blu-ray does win, because if that should fail Sony is going to be in big trouble. While I am not a Sony backer, I do want them to stay in the fight because they will help to keep pushing consoles to be better and better. I mean think about it...its been an amazing 1 1/2 years with the launch of all 3 new consoles...each bringing alot to the table to make the competition stop and think about what they could have done, etc.

Competition is good for all of for the format war. This will leave some on the wrong side of the fence for picking the wrong format and personally I don't wish that on anyone. So the sooner its fleshed out, the sooner we can all breath a little easier and know what direction to go with purchases, etc.
