I've had hd dvd far longer than bluray, but I began shifting purchases over to bluray well before WB announced they would be reviewing their postiion on both formats after the holidays. I go with my gut. My gut told me, sony would never lay down and die even if every other studio was aligned against them and that WB and the other studios, no matter how reluctantly would capitulate and cave in to bluray if they wanted to make anything happen on hidef hd dvd. The ps3 install base would grow regardless and once it hits $299, there would be accelerated adoption of the console and nothing on toshiba's side would compete with that. The prejudice many share about the ps3 being a game console is unfounded, and to be quite blunt about it, silly.
Ideally, I would like a bluray player with hd dvd specs, but that's not going to happen.
