I have been saying this for the last four months. this is the nuclear option that will bring the end to "BLUE"-Ray. Sony has absolutely no come back to this move because the DVD forum will only let the HD-DVD forum make a dual format Hybrid single-side disc. Thats why Sony is trying to end the war early so they will not have to face the music.
No one including Toshiba should claim victory with 1/2 of 1% sales in any given format. But when Hybrid movies come out in the millions per release then they can say good-bye to "BLUE"-Ray.
The best thing any HD-DVD supporter can do to help the cause is to e-mail links to this thread to Paramount, Universal, and Warner as well as any Magazine reporter that missed this one fact about the format wars. If you want to save the format then we have to dig deep and hunker down. I just watched Deep Impact over the weekend and something Morgan Freeman's character said brings this format war into perspective "It may seem like we have each other over the same barrel Ms. Learner, but I promise you it only seems that way" Ironically the movie is a Universal property.
