People are not going to buy 2 Different DVD players so we must have a winner. and the winner is HD DVD. Blu ray has 50gb (double layers) HD DVD has 30gb (double layers) 1hour HD program is 5.5gb. Do we relly need 20gb of EXTRA FEATURES? One Best reason why blu ray lost is because of the [bold]PRICE[/bold] Who would pay $1000 for blu-ray when you can get HD-DVD for $500. Even the movie cost more in Blu-ray. When people walk in to best buy and see that HD-DVD and Blu-ray has almost same picture quilty and same sound quilty. (which they can't even tell the difference)They're going to pick HD DVD. It seems like sony made another BETA mistake.
