I think the current situtation is that talks have broken down, and we'll be getting both formats. Whether we like it or not, and whether the studios like it or not. However, someone has released a universal decoder chip. I don't think we'll see universal players too soon, unless some of the platform agnostic manufacturers (are there any?) decide to get into the act.

I'm actually much less concerned about this than I am about the industry trend and desire for control over how many times we can watch (or how long we can keep) media. Google broadcast flag... although that initiative has failed for the time being, it's an indicator of what the industry wants--to be able to make us pay every time we view something. Sure, you can record TV, but you can only keep that recording for 48 hours. Want longer? OK, that'll be $x.99.

/rant. Maybe I read too much arstechnica.

I'm not all that concerned with the HD-DVD/Blu-ray war. They'll just make uni-players that will play both formats. That wasn't really possible with beta/vhs tape formats.

btw...it's looking good that the entire Bond series will be re-released in 1920x1080, completely restored from the original negatives. (yeah...i've got some inside poop.)

Whoever asked about them (HD DVD/Blue Ray) being out yet, they are supposed to be coming out later this year. I want to TV I buy to be ready for them when they do. I won't get a player right away, especially with the potential format wars, but I don't want to look back and wish I bought a different TV when I am ready to buy into the new format either.

If anybody is interested, here's the latest on the prospects of Universal Blu-ray and HD DVD players

Idiots. If they're worried about getting money back on their investment, the #1 priority should be figuring out a way for people to buy these things. NOBODY wants to buy two players. The easier they make this transition on the public, the more they'll sell, and the more they'll make.

Blu-Ray has a HUGE advantage though, with it being the PS3 standard. That alone is going to put a ton of Blu-Ray machines in people's homes.

Grrr...I hate corporate politics.

What you said, man, what you said.

Although this line: "both sides believe they have each found the formula that more perfectly suits consumers' desires." from the article is absolutely hilarious. It's not about consumers' desires. It's about industry desires. Consumers don't desire limitations.

This whole thing is pretty disappointing. The competing factions are worried about which side wins. It won't be the consumer - those folks footing the bill.

We've seen this same BS before with tape drives, VHS tape format and the like. I don't think that anyone wins.
