This says it all:
Finally the format war is over. I can't see how Toshiba can climb/spin out of the grave they dug themselves into. I don't know about the rest of you but I've never seen a single HD-DVD player on sale here - or more importantly HD-DVD films. Because no one seems to be stocking them. It is a vicious catch-22 cycle.
Sony was clever in buying a major film studio as they knew it was all about content. I guess Ken Kutaragi was right after all by forcing Blu-Ray technology onto the PS3.
