I hate to break your heart, but they don't care about the viewers either - just CA$H!!
The player is a real bargain. No question. The problem is two things.
1) Most of us have already invested in equiptment we will not make our money back on.
2) It's hard to see the value in Blu Ray for the price when HD DVD delivers great content.
When this thing drops, it will sell like hotcakes. But they have to make back all the R&D money first, with the help of early adopters. Soon everyone will have dual format players. Unfortunately, it will hurt the BD stand alone makers almost as bad as the PS3 does.
