    [news=http://i.afterdawn.com/v3/news/hddvd_vs_blu-ray.gif]An anonymous reader writes "The private feud just became public. Apparently, Gates yelled at Sony's CEO because the new copy protection Blu-ray has adopted would prevent players from streaming content to the Xbox 360. Since the PS3 will have Blu-ray support but the Xbox 360 only has a plain DVD drive, this means PS3 will be the only console that can play HD movies. Also, Paramount just announced support for Blu-ray and Warner Brothers may also jump ship . Will VHS vs. Betamax turn out differently this time?"

    Easier to manufacture and familiar name identity (but that's all in what you make it).

    presumably HD-DVD would be cheaper because it doesn't have stupid cartridges
