Right now it's ugly, but trust me the larger these markets get the more interest the other Studios will have.
I do not agree at all.
Joe 6 pack is who we need to start buying to get HDM in the mainstream & it will be too confusing if there are 2 formats.
The markets growth will be way too small & slow with 2 formats.
With all the HDTV's being sold now can you imagine where HDM would be right now if there was only 1 format?
IMO Unless Blu-Ray is gone & buried Sony will never release a movie on HD-DVD.
They are way too stubborn for that!
With Blu-Ray being required for PS3 games Blu-Ray will be around a long time.
