    Now I've seen everything. Sony started the year saying they'd already won. Now they want to end the war by hoping the other side will surrender. Must be worried I think.

    Interesting comment -

    "Added Marty concerning the drive away from DVD towards the next gen formats, 'The DVD format was good, but profitability only lasted for a couple of years before there was no money to be had in the hardware market. We believe consumers are smart enough to realise the benefits and pay the extra accordingly'."

    Remind of the benefits of paying a hefty premium for Blu-ray players to date ? Sounds like Tosh are forcing the price point at a pace Sony doesn't like.

    This war may be hurting Sony more than they care to admit:

    I just read this on Pocket Lint and I think this one of the most commical comments I've yet heard from Arrogant Sony:

    "People aren't interested in downloading videos at the moment. The internet is a good way of delivering music but not video," said Eklund. "Blu-ray has a good 8 to 10 years before the internet catches up."

    :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    Man, can Sony get any lower or even any more stupid? BT's new infrastructure will be up and running probably in 5 years and I can see fibre optics to your door in the not too distant future, so downloading HiDef films will be a long way away? I think not.
