As soon as you start giving away enough money to everyone else world wide so we can all buy the new toys.
You sound like a believer in Steve Jobs' doctrine of "forcing the future," scorning any obligation to maintain compatibility with even his own customers' existing software and peripherals - and he
refused to move beyond DVD to support Blu-ray on Macs.
That aside, not everyone wants - or is able
- to buy a new format player, a new display, and new copies of all their favorite disks every few years.
You're free to do so, but there's no need to force everyone else to. I love my Blu-ray player driving a 1080p projector to a 130" diagonal image, but I don't demand that my friends ditch their DVD players and older TVs and get new equipment - I'd rather they come over to enjoy my setup! And I'd
be disgusted if you were able to stop the studios from releasing anything other than UHDBD - I can't afford a new player and projector, and don't feel the need for them either.
By the way, the expression you were reaching for is "Up the ante" - which is quite appropriate, since it refers to increasing the stakes in gambling. Betamax or HD-DVD anyone?
