The war is over
 
Blue-Ray won. Sony is 1 and 1 on it's challenges for the dominant media format. Yeah it was Sony who lost to VHS with its Betta format.

I never cared which format won. I just wanted the war to be over.

How are you doing Zeldafan? http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=108045

Well, HD sales are still very low... let's just hope that they wither and die now, that would be the best for all.

Yeah because viewing movies in HD on anything other than HD-DVD is the devil and should just fail.

What about mini-disc? Or all the other failed formats Sony has pitched over the years?

Mini Disc did very well in Japan and had a pretty strong following over here. I still think my NetMD player sounds lightyears better than my iPod. It's just the iPod is easier, less content control and hold ALOT more.

Does look like Sony has had a success with Blu ray though. It has a catchy name, comes with their console and lets not forget the buckets of money Sony and the other BD supporters poured into it.

It's a lot like the original xbox, everyone expected it to fail, but MS kept at it and kept at it, and now look. Xbox is THE console and the PS3 is bringing it up the rear.

I myself always preferred HD-DVD, but BD is now at a stage I'm ok with it being THE format.

Now that the war is over. How long until I can get blank 25GB BD discs for less than $5? How about a SATA burner, for my comp, @ less than $200? That's what I've really been waiting for.
