    Keep waiting it will never happen

    This deal was pending well before HD DVD met its demise. But if it makes you all feel any better you can go ahead and think that this had something to do with it.

    I waited for DVD players to hit that price. They did you know. I'm not a big fan of collecting movies or home theaters either. I'll stick to going to matinées when I really want to see a movie. ;)

    The deal was under negotiations / pending before Toshiba pulled the plug on HD DVD and it ended the war.

    There is a BIG difference between that and

    The deal was agreed and settled before HD DVD met its demise.


    When the world is governed by the almighty $$$$$ you have to be naive to think this had no impact on Toshiba's decision, regardless of how many subsidiaries a company has.

    At the end of the day it makes no difference to me, or the majority of consumers. One format is best, but let's not pretend that this didn't have any impact on Toshiba / Sony partnership deal.
