Can we please go back to the topic at hand, namely, a combo player by Pioneer?

Thanks.

I absolutely agree, they could have worked with Apple and AND Microsoft, but they seem determined to do their own thing no matter whether it makes sense or not.

Just the same as there could have been a compromise with a bd/hd unification. My understanding is that it really could have happened (like the old DVD deal)

Actually just PC drive and not a STB. ;) Hate to be devil's advocate but other than Internet rumors does anyone have any hard facts that there truly is a prototype BDR-103 drive being shown. Unfortunately with the Internet just one planted hoax can turn into 1000's of factual stories in just a few hours.

I think there is as there is no clear consensus of the force the PS3 will have on the gaming market. While some experts think Sony will have continued success with PS3, others portend a Dreamcast-like flameout. That uncertainty (however limited it may appear) is exclusively about gaming. So you have to be willing to entertain the notion that uncertainty about the impact of the PS3 as a next gen movie device is even greater.

Hate to say I-told-you-so, but here's an update from CD Freaks

Quote:
"Currently we have no plans to do so..... however, Pioneer will monitor the market situation with other formats and will "consider" to adopt those formats as and where the market is demanding it".

He went on to say that his comments to some press people at IFA have been taken totally out of context and that it has been concluded by themselves that Pioneer would be introducing HD DVD support into their 3rd generation BD writer model.
