What contract?

Why not? Blu-ray has over 70% of the hardware revenue. Best Buy certainly makes more off of Blu-ray than they do off of DVD. They upsell to a lot of products without having to be paid off for it.

Next you'll tell me those bluetooth headsets they push with every cell phone is due to a payoff from random companies.

First: What PS3 mentality? Were we talking about the PS3? You keep bringing it up.

Second: Who said anything was dirty? You were implying it was back-room deals that caused these things with no proof. You did more than imply, you stated as fact these things. You have no proof.

Basically when you have no proof it's called "hearsay" and doesn't mean anything.

But you're also flawed to think that businesses can't make their own decisions based on market trends and future sales forecasts. Obviously these companies dont' know how to do these things and they rely solely on cash handouts.
