Default Whare is the HD-DVD Group?

I'm getting a little annoyed at the way hd-dvd g has not given us any answers. We as consumers deserve answers on what the next step will be, sooner than later. I telephoned hd-dvd and even the employees (call taker) has no clue on what is going on. Let us know so we can move on already, this is getting old!

Who did you call? The HD DVD Promotional Group does not have a consumer point of contact. Also these things take time, not one person decides, you have over 130 global partners to consult before they could make any strategy changes.

I called the HD-DVD Concierge number, which is there to answer your questions. Don't get me wrong I know that they may not have the full scoop, but they couldn't answer a single question.

Not surprising, they are just call center operators. However, I called them and they told me that Toshiba has no intention to drop the format and is working with its partners in order to determine the next steps.

Eventually the dust will settle and things will be back on track. I bet Uni will announce more HD DVD titles next week.

I'll bet they are.

What else can they say, really? We haven't heard anything because this is a huge blow. Emphasis on huge.

Whatever they might say would sound as stiff and "form letter" as the couple of press releases. We should face it: surviving the Warner exit in any meaningful way will require something Biblical in proportion. The existing HD base is way too small to support major label releases, and everybody is eyeing growth.

At best, some very fancy footwork, and options that I doubt Toshiba has seriously considered yet, might...might end with a surviving format, but for many, many years, on the fringe. A niche format that few well-heeled parties will be seriously interested in supporting.

And, hey, I'm not a Blu fanboy. Just being realistic. I just started to go Purple about six weeks ago, figuring that both would survive and thrive near equally, with dual players becoming more and more the norm.

I have 118 HD titles, and I plan to enjoy them for many more years.

Yeah right. At least someone understanding the terms of business.

Guys. Is patience such a big deal? You've to be patient in those things as it's not like the HD-DVD forum CEO has just to call in his mother to solve problems
