    Looks like this is the first step down the road of M$ killing off all competing technologies except from those prepared to pay out big money to play to their rules .. many HD WMVs will no longer play in TheaterTek or ZoomPlayer.

    Any one prepared to be the same games won't be played with HD-DVD to ensure no third-party players can handle those either?

    If the speculation is true, it seems like a sad and misguided policy. It will just fan the flames of media piracy, and increase the cost of ownership for the last remaining honest consumers.
