What's really funny is that on Friday there will actually be fighting between HD DVD supporters and blu-ray supporters on the way to grab $99 HD DVD players! Blu-Ray will now be bleeding exclusive consumer support big time. With Transformers HD DVDs out there and $99 HD DVD players out there, there's a problem for BD. Sony to Houston - we have a problem! The $199 Chinese player just got undercut - Where's the $99 Panasonic or Pioneer? These companies must be really upset - no profit whatsoever for them in this HD optical disc war. $99 is going to be the de facto price very soon, whether anyone likes it or not. The HD world has changed markedly in the consumers favour. There are some heavy posters on this forum (BD supporters - bandwidth guys) who have been conspiciously absent lately - maybe they got a heads up!
Not one post by thebland yet saying price doesn't matter.
Blu-Ray's problems lies on Sony's shoulders - original releases with excellent PQ with aggressively priced players would have won the war - now it has a real fight to the death on its hands!
