What I can trust is that Microsoft has a business reason for both business decisions. I do think the HD DVD decision was a bad one and wish the company would put some muscle behind Blu-ray, but that hasn't happened and it appears Microsoft will only get involved when there is really no other choice, meaning lose business or offer Blu-ray options for the XBox 360. I don't think the lost business amounts to much yet and therefore Microsoft continues to wait.

yeh and in the meantime they spread there lies about hd downloading making it appear like its just around the corner,to convince people to hold off buying into with blu-ray.
like or not they are truely snakes in the grass.or ms is worried bd might just take off.

If M$ backs blu-ray, blu-ray might actually take off.
Maybe they don't care if they get a piece of blu-ray as long as Sony doesn't make more money from it.
