Rich Marty is the vice president of new business development for Sony and he has been talking about the latest company (Acer) to join the Blu-Ray movement.
He said the two companies he really wants would be Toshiba and Microsoft :), I wonder why… Anyway the whole article is fine but generally just your normal news until I stumbled across this gem…
The DVD format was good, but profitability only lasted for a couple of years before there was no money to be had in the hardware market,” said Marty. “We believe consumers are smart enough to realise the benefits and pay the extra accordingly
So we must buy Blu-Ray players because these multi national corporations are not making any money on the DVD hardware anymore? Is it just me who finds that brazenly arrogant of them? Yes we all know that these companies are driven by profit but I would expect them to rather sell their products on features and not on the fact that they want more profit.
I sincerely hope Blu-Ray now lose this war, actually I sincerely hope both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray lose this war. Neither format is required at the moment.
