Who in their right mind would side with either format? No industry standard equals consumer apathy and lack of interest. Who wants to be on the 'losing' side of a purchase. Standardize the format and you will see the acceptance rate skyrocket. Its not about the money, nobody wants to be standing there with a worthless $1000 Beta, MD etc.
Kingboy is a loser more proof he doesnt read articles he just sees "HD video" associates it wth 360 and votes cool
Sales of BluRay and Hd DVD are lower than expected, shock horror! Why does the writer still insist that these formats are wanted by the public, personally I dont care abut either and would much rather get HD video content via DSL on VOD. Whats the point of spending £600 on a new player which will be obsolete in 5 years. Also, I already replaced my VHS collection in the past 5 years and I dont feel happy at having to do it again with another format so soon.
