If anybody should bow out, it should be the format that was developed second.
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.
