Yes you are right it the companies backing it. I think soon the majority of consumers follow what the majority of companies backing it, that what happened with VHS.

I checked both HD-DVD and Blu-ray to get the latest updated of supporters.

HD-DVD - 137
Blu-ray - 172

Also the Hollywood movie studios:

HD-DVD - 3
Blu-ray - 6

HD-DVD has 50% backed by Paramount, Universal and Warner Bros and Blu-ray has 100% full backed by all movie studios Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros, Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Walt Disney.

HD-DVD have only 50/50 chance to lose the format to Blu-ray, if Warner Bros did not get great support for Total-HD format then Warner Bros would soon realised they will backing Blu-ray 100% that would leave Hollywood 33% backed HD-DVD.
