Ok ,now I see it .
One of the more stupid decisions ever .I suppose when they sell 100K of their megaton movies they will reconsider this .
It particularly astounds me the reasons they have given " looking to the manufacturing costs and current price of the format " .My god ,BR movies are already less expensive than HD-DVD ones and as for the players price Sony and the BR camp will be easily capable of reducing their price way faster than Toshiba as they are producing at 4x the rate readers ....
Paramount has just shoot themselves on the foot ,but yes ,this is bad news for Blu Ray .
Less expensive for consumers when comparing Bluray discs to HD Combo discs. Otherwise, it's priced the same. BUT, it is COST less to manufacture HD DVD since it's based on DVD technology, not like the proprietary technology from Sony's Bluray.
Looking at the mass market, most consumers go for lower price. That's the reason for Walmart's success and dominance. Not everyone goes for the more expensive technology. I'm sure people at Paramount are not stupid. Maybe they know something consumers don't.
