No one should bow out - this is the market working
We have two competing products that both have a right to be here. The market will determine if one or both survives. My comment was in response to Chris' continued remarks that BD is the only hope for high def movies and that HD-DVD should bow out or fail.
IMO, both are going to hang around for a long time, which is why I plan to buy a BD player in 2008. It doesn't matter to me who was here first (BD) or who is the officially "sanctioned" successor to DVD (HD-DVD).
