I'll completely agree that this is all about money, but you must realize that the HD-DVD camp is not alone in buying support. Sony has been buying the support of major studios from the start, and this is all simply to support the PS3. Why the PS3? Why would anyone buy a stand alone player when you can get a PS3 that does the same thing and plays games for a few dollars more?
Evilchris has explained thank you very much
