The MONEY is clearly on the Blu-ray side however.
Hmmm, like the 200 million microsoft paid a couple studios to switch to HD DVD? HD DVD was DEAD 5 years ago, until Mr Gates pumped an unknown amount of cash into it. Sadly, he and his company are not financially hurt by losing about a billion dollars.

The money in blu-ray movie is in SALES! stores can't sell HD DVD movies, the blu-rays are flying off the shelves.

Toshiba may have killed themselves. Many stores offer price guarantees. By dropping their prices so soon after christmas, retailers will drop them out of spite. HD DVD is dead.

The STUPID money is on HD DVD
