Therefore, whether you spend $300 more on a BD player over an HD DVD player solely hinges on your patience in waiting for the dominos to fall and studios to eventually start going neutral over the next 6mos - 1 year. $300 more is a lot to spend for instant gratification when HD DVD already has a crapload of awesome movies available.
If it goes to a stalemate, I'd expect the studios gravitate towards the format that is cheapest for them to produce.
