Yea law suits, you sell 100,000 HD-DVD players at a fire sale & then they find out they can't buy any movies for them in a couple of months someone will try to sue them, and if you don't think that's true your living in a dream world.

That sounds like they paid them to say what they wanted to hear because that's just wrong!
With no format war & HDTV's selling better all the time HDM sales will increase with no war.

First off most consumers could care less about HDM Because there is a war going on once the war is over the majority of people will start to get interested.

Dude, most people weren't going to invest in anything until the war was over.

The only good thing is for the war to be over.
