Price is what will win this war as both formats basically give you the same thing audio and visual wise (with HD-DVD currently having an edge in that regard).
Well after 3 days of $99 Toshiba A2 sales ended, Toshiba hoped 90,000 units sold would see a huge marketshare gain from Blu-ray but until sales data released week ended 4 Nov, Blu-ray still very strong than weeks before hold 71% and HD-DVD dropped to 29%. Toshiba not going to very happy that last week price cut gained nothing.
