Truth is that the compromise between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD has nothing to do with technical difficulties, and, as always, the financial impediments are the ones stalling the negotiations. Itís hard to believe that the two companies wonít be able to solve the technical issues, and itís more tangible that the problem is who gets the bigger cut.
More likely than not, the disagreements in this war are not about technological issues, rather they are about financial ones. Whoever controls this new format will have an enormous influence over the movie industry, and that means huge profits. As always, itís profits first and consumers second.
