Default Re: Mitsubishi releases new BD recorders in Japan

You would think that manufacturers would race to bring their latest and best stuff to the largest CE market in the world; but somehow it doesn't seem to happen that way.
Why exactly did Japan have HD TV over a decade before US?
I have heard it had something to do with industry bickering about competing "standards", and such. Even now, it is taking an awfully long time for HD TV to trickle in.
