Following up on the rumor that Warner Bros. was going exclusively Blu-ray from October, BusinessWeek has their own speculation that Warner Bros. will be swapping to the Sony side. The rumor stems from a quote from Lionsgate vice-chairman Michael Burns (who may or may not know what he thinks he knows) who says "The rumor is Warner is coming aboard soon." Not much else substantiates this rumor other than the quote, but who knows, maybe Burns knows someone calling the Blu-ray/HD DVD shots over at Warner. [BusinessWeek]
I humbly submit that the reason this 'war' has not ended is not due to Sony or Toshiba, but due to us. Look no further than this thread. If we (the consumers) would just say 'okay, we are only going to buy X' then the war would be over and we would have our format. But, no. We pick our favorites and refuse to budge.
Why can't we just have an online poll on which should win, and then all agree that the winner of that poll is the only format we will purchase. Agreed?
Didn't think so.
