Who Will Win the HD format War - Sony or Toshiba?

Smarthouse News (Australia) reports on October 14, 2007:

"As Sony cranks up marketing for their Blu ray offerings in Australia it has been revealed that the next generation of the Sony Playstation is set to incorporate new Blu ray management features as well as new software for the storing and management of content in the home. Don Eklund, executive VP of advanced technologies for Sony Pictures Home Entertainment let the cat out of the bag at a recent conference in the US.

Sony is adamant that Blu ray will win the HD format war and as such is each quarter rolling out new features and upgrades. However GFK research shows that Australians are not adopting the new HD formats quickly particularly if one takes out the PS3 Games Console and the attached Xbox 360 HD DVD player."

The 5-page report contains DisplaySearch and NPD's numbers and commentary, fighting words from opposing Sony and Toshiba, and comments from Warner as well as Pioneer/Blu-ray Assocation vs. Paramount/HD DVD camp.

"new Blu ray management features as well as new software for the storing and management of content in the home" for the new 40 Gig ps3's? I never knew that *puzzled face*

That must be the new blu-ray stuff that Sony guy was talking about in the interview, some Blu-Ray 1.1 or something aye?

But yer interesting article. D

By the way, does anybody know if the Pirates of the Carribean and Matrix captions hold any truth?

I'm only HD DVD right now but will get into BD with a PS3 purchase (not the 40gb gimped model). As I've said many times before... embrace both (formats and consoles)

I don't care who ... just somebody win for god sake.

I almost wish BR wins so I can give my self that last little push I need to buy a PS3 at Christmas.

But I now it will NOT be over by December 25th

Wow are you in middle school?

Sorry but DBZ lost all appeal when my nuts dropped and realized that DBZ is nothing but a cartoon with ridiculous characters sounding like they're constipated for 30 min at a time.

All they do is flex and talk, then maybe once a month they might fight.

Ghost in the Shell = actually good anime.

That was cool .... when I was still coloring outside the lines and watching cartoons.
