I do not feel WB or Paramount regret being neutral due to the double-dip possibility. I.E. = People who current own titles on HD-DVD from Paramount and WB will have to buy the same titles again when HD-DVD is obsolete.
Where do you get your info from man? A 3 WEEK CHART???
GIVE ME A BREAK MAN!
Stop hanging around BR fanatics and get into the act of getting information from INDEPENDENT 3RD PARTY SOURCES!
I don't give a hoot what HD DVD fanatics or BR fanatics think, I go to independent sources who have no vested interest in either format; that's where you gather the truth.
Do you think that we in the media go to companies and ask them what they think of themselves, and then air that as facts? No. we go to 3rd party sources to corroborate their stories.HD DVD just won the prestigious Product of the Year Award from Sound And Vision, the world's largest entertainment magazine. When the most trusted and respected CE magazine gives you its highest honor, your future is very bright! http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=795101
You think buyers are so stupid, that they buy into what the BDA or the HD DVD Promotion groups are selling? NO! These bodies are BIASED TOWARD THEIR BRAND, and therefore whatever they say about themselves, and their back patting amounts to SQUAT in the eyes of consumers!
What consumers trust are ACCREDITED THIRD PARTY REVIEWS. That is why they read Consumer Reports Magazine.
This is why you see auto makers advertising "Car And Driver Truck of the year", or "JD Power and Asso. Truck of the Year" ads. They SELL PRODUCTS!
The BDA's self promoting tactics is BAD MARKETING, it will eventually do more harm than good.
