sorry xbots were wrong about hd-dvd... and soon they are going to be wrong about digital distribution.

Infrastructure is not there and I dont expect a regular joe will be knowledgeble or have the patience to download movies.

....when CD's died because digital music distribution took over??? You don't??? None of you???? Because it never happend...and music downloads are around for 10 years or so and people still buy discs!! Why?? Not everyone has the patients or the smarts to download music or some people like a hard copy of their favorite album. Also you could download movies from the net for about 10 years as well...that didn't stop DVD's getting big!! Some kind of format will always distribution will never take over....maybe 500years from now!! But not in the near future!

What Microsoft fails to see is that this is nothing new!!

"Toshiba is maintaining its backing for HD DVD but Microsoft is notably restrained in its encouragement, although it has said it is totally committed to the format and has now plans to build Blu-ray devices."

So Microsoft said that they are "totally committed" to HD-DVD but have plans to build Blu-ray devices.....they made their first sentance false with their second....Just goes to show how confident Microsoft is about it's products.

Microsoft- HD-DVD failed, Windows Vista failed, Xbox Live....failed for a month I hear. Xbox 360 failed (RROD)

Can Microsoft do anything right???

Sure is! There were plenty of news circulating that consumers have started to join the Blu-ray bandwagon. Some who bought their HDDVD players last Xmas have exchanged it for Blu-ray players.
