Sony had an easy out. Couldn't Sony have pushed for HD DVD and the Triple layer Twin to be used? Any of the manufacturers could have (and should/should have) pushed for this. You get HD DVD Twins in people's homes, they start building a high def collection, they start to think about buying a high def TV. Then a player to go with it.
Simple thinking - give them yet another reason to adopt HD and they are more likely too. Sony would gain from this - maybe not as much as they would from blu-ray, but they could have still kept the games on blu-ray discs.
