Oh please!

Blu-Ray was invented as a recordable medium, not a mass-producible, read-only format.

HD DVD came to market first. Who cares what was invented first? HD DVD was perfected and marketed and sold first.

Blu-Ray has yet to perfect their format:

-It's still too expensive.

-They can't get a decent yield on 25GB discs.

-They still don't have all of their announced features working more than a year after introduction (and several years after being "invented").

It's obvious which one should bow out from a technical point of view.
