I doubt Sony will release this 399 PS3 this winter. It seems like to quick of a price drop and to smart of a move by Sony. If they do end up going down this road I think that the shares they just opened is going to cover the early losses, which will then be replaced by blu-ray and game income.
Now onto Blu-ray vs HD-DVD
To think that Blu-ray is just one > DVD is to be very uninformed. HD-DVD may be one > DVD, but Blu-ray is a tru leap to a new generation of disk format. At this point in time HD has played all of its cards. If it becomes the format of choice we will have what we have right now for the next 10 years. However if Blu-ray wins we will see a disk format that has twice the life and will see improvments throughtout its life. Mitsubishi is already talking about being able to film 3D in HD, and the only format that can hold enoughf data is Blu-ray. Everything about blu-ray is way better than HD-DVD. Blu-ray has a 75% faster required read speed for all players, it is scalable to 5x the capacity of HD-DVD, and it has better copyright protection. Anyone that does not want to support these formats doesn't have a clue about them. The people that support HD-DVD are only jumping off a bridge into traffic. Blu-ray is a real leap in technology, and can be a great format for years to come.
Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
