« 8X8 VOIP Review: Total Disaster | Main | Hiring a 3D Game Engine Developer »



As always, I enjoy this blog.

I think DVD-A and SACD failed because they did not have a value proposition that 99% of customers care about. Their sound quality improvement is also non-existent in 99% of stereo systems.

Blu-Ray and HD DVD will be "forced" on consumers with the console upgrade cycle. Customers also own HDTVs and believe "HD" is an improved experience (which it really is). The studios will be able to market the next gen of DVDs as HD Compatible which is value proposition that customers understand and want.

All things being equal, HD DVD could win on the basis of their name!
