So David,since Panasonic and Sony are "BLUE",which Way do You think the Video Industry goes,especially if Intel and Microsoft like the HD DVD??
Personally I find both formats to be great for archiving.
Assuming both types of HD DVDs work as touted, the companies that give the players away at a very low price will probably win the battle. In the long haul, it not the players that generate the most capital, its the software. I'm betting on Sony, but I wouldn't bet my future on it...
I read an article just a few days ago that spelled out the mjaor differences, and that was the most glaring one they mentioned. Its very possible that the guy who wrote the article got that wrong. I'd imagine that would be a deal breaker for many people.
