CES: HD-DVD Ain't Dead Yet, Supporters Say

One of the big questions at CES is how the HD DVD camp would respond to Warner Bros.' decision to throw what most thought was the decisive vote behind Blu-ray DVD. As the largest studio accounting for about 20 percent of movies, the general wisdom was that HD DVD was dead. Long live HD DVD. No more next generation DVD format war.

I liked how they keep on saying it was a surprise due to the momentum that HD-DVD had been gaining. Even now, they still don't count the PS3 when it comes to hardware sales yet they count it for attachment rate. I have bought seven titles besides the five free ones since I got my PS3 this summer and I didn't even buy a PS3 for Blu Ray.

Well, it will take them some time to realise the defeat and it's bitterness.

It would be fun if Sony says HD-DVD is dead during it's conference.

If these guys don't realize its over now, when will they?
If they continue, all it'll do is make further confusion for the consumer.
There is no chance that HD-DVD can come back from this without some major bribes going on. If they continue promoting it, the only reason I can guess they would want to do that is to destroy the market for HD...that would be stupid and prophetic.
