Do you believe any figures I stated in my post intended to be humorous are false? Do you believe HD DVD has any chance whatsoever to sell as well as Beta?
I don't know what Blu-ray will do yet, but tiny niche status or worse is all that HD DVD can do.
And BD can only hope to be as successful as UMD
