I saw the writing on the wall nearly a year ago, while so many continued dishing out money for extremely expensive HD-DVD players and DVDs. Have people learned nothing from these types of “format wars” of the past? Hello? VHS vs. Betamax? What did you expect? Now, nearly a million people around the world are stuck with what will become their ridiculously expensive standard definition DVD player and a few HD DVD titles, such as The Ultimate Matrix Collection.
So, what do you think? Did Toshiba take the red pill or the green pill? It was always a delusion. They never had a chance.
But don’t expect me to rush out and buy a Blueray player, not until Sony shoves their DRM up their corporate behinds (or someone successfully hacks it — maybe they already have???).
