Nearly everyone was saying the same thing about DVD for years. LG, Samsung, Sony, Philips, Ritek, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Toshiba, NEC... these companies all bet Blu-ray and HD DVD markets are going to grow much faster than CD and DVD markets have grown. And Blu-ray and HD DVD are coming exactly when the world is undergoing a transition from analog TV to digital HDTV. Remember what people said when the first analog televisions were tested and marketed? Despite of so many problems, both Blu-ray and HD DVD are doing very well.
