Competing formats just confuse the general public and annoy the hardcore early adopters who pick the wrong side. http://muhammadhassan.ytmnd.com Promote this thread!

Having Sony as one of the negotiators is a good thing (the only company to be both content and tech) but I could see a studio holding out, like DreamWorks and Disney did (initially favoring Divx over DVD.) All it takes is one manufacturer (like Panasonic) to kick out their content in a rival format to delay the transition. exit 670 dot com Hierarchy of Deities: Bryan Fuller > Sarah Vowell > Roger Ebert > Albert Pujols > Dee Brown

Glad to see that they've decided to try and compromise. Working at Blockbuster, I was
looking forward to the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray format war. Even if most of my customers probably aren't aware of a next-generation format yet.

Right on. Now we can look forward to incredibly jacked up prices...
But, it only opened on 825 screens, compared to around 3000 for most of the top 5 movies. If you look at per screen average, it SMOKED everything else out there.
