It's dangerous to set-up 'standards' that don't keep the ultimate consumer in mind... I don't see any of this 'disk wars' as benefiting us, it's control, power and money. High Def was forced upon the industry, consumers have wanted better resolution for years. It looks like China has seen the achilles heel of N. America and it's 'standards' and will bring forth a disk system without DRM... and cheaply.
Thanks to the 'disk wars' it has a ready made market, back to BT.
