The software edge does matter to the studios.

The studios can & will ignore that as long as Blu-Ray is outselling HD-DVD 2-1!
The studios don't make a cent off of hardware, they want to sell software & if the people that bought all of those $99 HD-DVD players won't spend $30 for a HD-DVD movie & are instead using it as an upconverting DVD player the studios could care less how many of those are sold as long as more people are buying Blu-Ray movies.
