Default Blu Ray Add on - What becomes of this forum?

Just a thought...if Microsoft releases a Blu Ray add on will be do away with this forum? (HD DVD and Video Game Consoles)? Or will Blu Add on related items be posted along with PS3 items, instantly turning the foum into a smackdown arena?

You could always move this forum under a Neutral heading and then call it "Consoles That Do Everything" Or "Format Neutral and Video game Consoles"

Hmmmm

Why would this forum go away? Do the 300,000ish add ons disappear if Microsoft releases a new one?

Actually it won't happen either. Microsoft wouln't be that dumb feeding their own video game console enemies.

Wouldn't it be in M$' best interest to offer a Blu-ray add-on to help counter PS3 sales?

Yeah but then they would have to pay their own enemy.

MS going Blu = Direct Licence fees necessary to pay to SONY.

I saw this mentioned somewhere else and i think it's very true. MS and Sony aren't enemies, yes their consoles are competitors but windows is still on sony pc's and such. Competitors can balance off of each other for support, no company in the world that i know of is totally self sufficient.
