I think the loss can be seen as a failure by Toshiba as much as a victory for Blu-Ray.
They seemingly had many advantages out of the gate but either they got cocky or were incompetent & it's going to cost them big bucks!
I thought the WB announcement was the beginning of the end but I didn't expect the end to come so quickly & without a fight.
They did not know how to market their product. HDDVD truly survived just from great word of mouth from happy consumers.
