Steevo, I'm sorry, but almost your entire post was incorrect. You must not own HD. I own both formats. If you look at the situation with blu-ray from a business standpoint, Blu-ray ultimately could be the bad choice for filmmakers and consumers.
Sony owns Sony Pictures. So if blu-ray wins, sony could charge all other film studios loads of money to manufact discs. As a result, it would be more expensive to create a movie, and film makers would be forced to join with sony pictures to keep the budget lower.
Toshiba doesn't make movies and wouldn't benifit from being dicks to american movie studios. HD DVD FTW.
