It's an interesting move. It would make all purchases from those Studios usable in HD-DVD players. Giving buyers of DVD a clear path towards which HDM to choose.
It's also a path BD can't follow.
That would mean that Toshiba would have to subsidize hd dvd production costs to all their studios. (you would have to believe uni, para wouldn't want to subtract more production costs off their dvd profits) It would be a great move but how willing are the studios to actually do this?? Thats a lot of combo discs pressed. And we would have to keep the msrp the same price as other studios dvd's right?
