Hey, ex-HD-DVD cheerleaders, stop the sour grapes. HD-DVD is dead. The war is over. Now if Blu-Ray will win mass market acceptance remains to be seen. But I thought that the, so called, “format war” was between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. The former is dead, so, Blu-Ray finished it off. I don’t plan to invest a Euro cent on Blu-Ray for the foreseable future but, if you ask me, it may very well be that Blu-Ray can win a fair chunk of market penetration. It’s only necessary for the hardware to fall to acceptable price levels. Once that happens and with so many people (at least over here) having HD screens it’s only natural that they want higher definition content. And, apart from Blu-Ray, where will it come from? HD downloads? Nah, doesn’t cut it, still too much hassle and there are tons of people who simply must have the physical medium, i.e. they like collecting disks.
