PlayStation3's has immense spill-over benefits that you, obviously, don't recognize. It instantly lowers the barrier to entry for huge swaths of the consumer cross-section that HD-DVD may never see. A family which, currently, purchases DVDs that would never buy a HDTV & stand-alone player at these prices may very well buy a PlayStation3 for gaming. At which time the cost to transition from DVD --> BD are zero.
I find your thinking and argument insignificant and not able to justify your snide remarks.
