    I posted this in the software forum, but I had meant to post it here, in hardware, initially.

    An interesting article from the NY Times:


    Interesting. I wonder what effect, if any, this will have on the developments in the format war?

    Interesting article Sean. I would think Sony would want to enlist as many as possible...

    If anything comes out of this investigation at all, the European Committee may (first) warn and (then) fine studios who refuse to release films on both formats.
    Interesting.

    If the same happens with hardware manufacturers, a general player (BD & HD DVD) might be closer than we expected.
