That makes no sense. The mainstream is not on here so it will be business as usual for them.
Face it, when you go into BB and try to by an HD DVD player the salesman will be telling you to buy BR as HD DVD is about dead. Hd DVD sales will plummet.
You're joking me right? You really think if I go to buy a HD DVD player on Monday they will stop me and say don't because its dead? LMAO...You can still buy VCRs cant you?
When people buy PS3s do they tell them don't bother because Xbox is killing them in sales, game selection and online play?
If they go to buy an SXRD do they tell them don't because Sony lost a lawsuit and will no longer be making them?
What are all those places gonna do with all the HD DVD stuff they have? Eat the cost? I don't think so.....
BR has won this thing.
Why some of you are saying you will not buy BR is beyond me though.
BR has not won squat yet. They are currently leading after 5 laps in a 500 lap race. They beat out HD DVD but who's to say they will even finish the race without blowing a motor trying to catch DVD.
When new releases stop coming out on DVD/HD DVD and are only available on Bluray, then you can say they won.
On a side note, if thats the format that does take out DVD I have no problem buying BDs with a final spec.
