Here is my prediction: HD-DVD format has been broken, and will probably be broken again in the future. I predict that unless someone breaks BlueRay in a similar way really soon, the Sony media disks will fade into obscurity and HD-DVD sales will skyrocket as consumers will buy by cartload to get access to easily rippable HD content.
It’s ironic, but I think that releasing “The Number” into the wild and the Digg revolt was probably the best thing that could happen to HD-DVD.
That’s my prediction. Let’s see if I’m right. 2 or 3 years from now remind me to link back to this post with an “I told you so”.
