    I tried to tell everyone to go HD DVD, but I only know four people, so it didn't work.

    HD-DVD doesn't hold much leverage anymore.

    But yes, I think people would have been better off with HD-DVD. I guess people went with Blu-Ray because they assumed that because it was more expensive, it must have meant it was better. Sony is ingenious that way.

    It truly surprised me when they won the format war, because Sony's been losing format wars for almost 30 years. I guess they had it coming.

    Also, they should have called HD-DVD "HDVD" (High Definition Versatile Disc). It's much catchier.

    I'm sure the PS3, in particular, was a major determining factor.

    I'm more into PCs, forgive any mistakes, but wasn't XBOX360 HD-DVD at first? I thought those sold like hotcakes.

    No, the Microsoft made the HD-DVD add-on device in response to the PS3's built-in Blu-Ray player.

    But like I said, it was probably the higher price on Blu-Ray players that led people to think it was better, despite both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray having the exact same playback quality.

    Tech talk. Acronyms. Dull off-topic discussion.

    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.
