Hopefully a few more weeks of this & Universal & Paramount will use the escape clause & put an end to all this.
If all this doesn't work for Toshiba all they will have accomplished with the Super Bowl ad & fire sale prices is to sell a player that will have no support in the near future & this will not endear them to the consumers.
Who knows maybe this will spawn a bunch of Toshiba haters that will take over from all the Sony haters out there.
Paramount's escape clause will only come into effect (if I've heard right) if Universal goes blu.

Which according to Bill Hunt they should have on Friday, so maybe they will this week. I mean his sources were untouchable!
