If it's to declare the doom of the xbox360, that's apples to oranges an not relevant.

HD-DVD is not for games, MS is not splitting the user base with HD-DVD.

There's nothing about the Xbox 360 in this article.

It's simply about the history of the Sony and Nintendo in the run up to the launch of their consoles. I mean, isn't that obvious? It doesn't even MENTION the Xbox, it just compares the CD format wars to the DVD format wars... which could be compared to the VHS/Betamax wars.

Simple enough.

Thanks for the clarification. I did say "IF" merely based upon the timing of this article.

Clearly I'm not the only one who thought it COULD be related.. stricly on timing.

Again, thanks for clarifying. My original post wasn't towards you anyways, but the author of the article.

If they are trying to compare the add-on HD-DVD player to the Sega CD, they are way off!

The HD-DVD player will not play games! It doesn't have a procssor for gaming. If it did, it would be the size of the 360. Its an add-on that is there if you want it. You don't need it to play games.

If you want to talk about add-ons, lets start with the PS2.

-Network Adapter


Both of which came with a standard XBox. But did the PS2 go under?

Let's not forget that its funded by one of the richest companies in the world. Yes, M$ has a lot more money than Sony.

Sega was just a gaming company.

See what I said in 1.1. Nothing to do with HD DVD/Bluray.

Lionel Hutz5857d ago

Sony is a bigger company and has more money than MS.
