H ere today D ead tomorrow

So HD-DVD is dead and Blu-Ray wins. I suppose the only surprising thing there is that when the end came in the format war it came so suddenly and so completely. However I did find it interesting how many people on the radio seemed to be asking "Does this mean my HD ready TV wont play the new disks?". It sounds like Toshiba had the market in the palm of their hands with people confusing HD TV and HD-DVD players. Perhaps if they had gotten enough players on shop shelves a couple of years ago so that people could buy a player bundled with their TV then Blu-Ray would now be a PS3 feature instead of the future of DVDs.
