I read that the warring HD-DVD and Blu-Ray have made exclusive deals with different movie studios to bring blockbusters out in only one format this Christmas, and will slash the price of their players to give consumers an incentive to buy one format or the other.
JUST SAY NO.
We, the consumer, should just say we aren't going to fall for that crap and make them slash the prices on players that can play BOTH formats. (It's probably not feasible to make them "settle on a format, already!").
Can anyone say BETA vs. VHS? Let's learn from that mess.
