that sounds like sony will be getting into HD DVD by a back door,
and they can save face by saying it's CH DVD
it's good news for the possibility of cheapo players though
(although I still fancy a PS3 to compliment my 360 and tosh HD player,
I'm just waiting for a pre xmas price reduction.)
LMAO at all the fanbois of both sides on the forum underneath the article!
I just don't get the fanboi-ism with this. You do your research, choose the one that seems the best/ has the best chance of success, if you got it wrong you jump ship. You don't spend hours trying to convince everybody else you are right, resorting to insults if your argument isn't getting through!
What are people trying to achieve? Doing Sony/Toshiba's selling for them?
Better still, if you can, you buy both, or a dual format player
I think that for North America, EU and Asia this means cheap HD DVD players coming out of China.
That, however, does not mean high quality players. But im sure that if cheap players are available it will mean that prices over all will eventually come down as more and more people adopt.
With paramounts sudden shift to HD DVD things are looking brighter for HD DVD.
Poor Sony, its as if everyone is out to get any format they ever produce!
I ignored the question because I can't see any relevance in it.
There has been Chinese members of The BDA for some time, I think you should find the original source of the 'no chinese' and ask him why such a ridiculous statement was ever made and was it ever an official policy.
But honestly, who cares if they changed their minds, if indeed they did.
