With the introduction of 720p downloads from Apple I can see Microsoft bailing completely from HD-DVD & rushing to getting their own download format released.
Now is the time for the HDM war to end.
They've had a 720p download format going strong for over a year with over 10M movies downloaded! Which is better than HD-DVD and BD combined!
MS is just as interested in HD-DVD as they are downloadable content. They go to two very different markets in their mind.
I hear we may hear something next week.
