Default Lets End the HD Format War II

I was watching a SD version of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN upscaled on my HD DVD player.

I was thinking to myself, I know this is on Blu Ray but I will wait until Disney goes neutral.

First of all, I am a fan of films and HD is a great medium to watch it in.

I know I laid plenty of smack against Blu Ray fans, for that I am sorry but we need to move forward and work on an exit strategy.

HD DVD needs to sympathetic to Blu Ray fans and give them a trade in bonus, or a cash rebate so we can all unite to one format.

The reality is, once the format war is over the more fans will come aboard and abandon DVD.

this is cute, BD has 70 - 75% of the studio support, BD is out selling standalone players, as well as software, there is no way atleast I cannot see a way how HD DVD can realistically win this war, I want HDM to continue to exist, and I worry that if this war goes on too long that both HD DVD and Blu-ray could fail, and we'd be stuck with HD Downloads, or DVD... do you really want that?
