I am simply saying regardless of the spin attempts that will come, this is negative news for HD-DVD. Simple as that.
How could it be bad for HD-DVD? How could it be good for BD? One more manufacturer to compete with for all the CE's.
If there are 50,000 Funai BD players made at a price of $300. That isn't the "death" blow you are making it out to be. Who's to say there will be "millions"?
There simply aren't enough details to say it is good or bad news. No one knows the price, quantity or the location they will be selling.
If Wal-Mart is indeed having HD-DVD players made for them, they will market HD-DVD and it's player over BD and your Funai player will sit on the shelf much like it's brethren.
With the Fuh Yuan ordeal we had a;
Who: Fuh Yuan, Great Wall and Wal-Mart
How Many: 2 million to start and the possibility of more
How Much: We had price points hinted at at least
You have none of this, yet you act like you do.
More good news for HD-DVD!
