That pie chart is not accurate for the North American market -- Universal is HD-DVD only, and Dreamworks is missing. The image should probably be removed from this version of the page.

I can't imagine Universal is going to be HD-DVD for much longer if Toshiba isn't making the players any longer.
On an unrelated note, crap. Blu-ray is a stupid name. They didn't even spell Blue right. I'm going to pronounce it "Bluh-ray" in protest. Oh well, guess I'll go update my entire movie collection to bluh-ray. - 17:55, 20 February 2008 (UTC)Reply
Well, Universal went Blu-ray today and on top of that, DreamWorks more or less falls under Paramount these days. --TUFKAAP - (talk) 20:27, 20 February 2008 (UTC)Reply
About the name Blu-ray; it's quicker to say than HD-DVD. You can also say BD which stands for Blu-ray disc (analogous to CD, DVD). 23:55, 20 February 2008 (UTC)Reply

Makes sense edit

I, like many people, was disappointed with Sony for bringing out the MemoryStick when there was no reason to introduce a new format. However, in this case, BluRay is technologically superior. It is good that we have one format now and the decision was made sooner than later. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:15, 21 February 2008 (UTC)Reply
