Meh, it's better if adoption rates for both camps continue to languish like they are. Hopefully the financial burdens for Toshiba and Sony will reach a point that they will finally concede and cooperate with each other and make a better standard than what either offers alone now. I.E. high capacity, standards for bitrates & visual fidelity (to put the capacity to good use), flexibility to use whatever codec (at a high enough bit rate to match a high visual quality in the other codecs), elimination of redundancies like multiple lossless audio encodings, multiple interface language standards/versions, etc. Sure that will sting for the early adopters with PS3's, xa2's, etc., but at least it would benefit the masses in the mainstream still holding out ...
