And Microsoft's Halo 3 first-day sales of over $170 million, easily surpassed Spiderman 3, and is gonna fuel a lot more support for X-Box 360.

Movies... video games... HD recording... this format war might have "just begun to fight."

agree completely . . . I'm betting we'll still be seeing posts on this subject a year from now and, probably, two years from now . . . both camps are in this for the long-haul and I don't see either giving up without a fight to the death; however, as was posted here earlier, the porn camp will be weighing in with their massive multi-billion $ market and they were absolutely the straw that broke the camel's back in the Beta/V-HS war. Stay tuned . . .
