Why HD-DVD and Blu-Ray Have Already Failed

Audioholics,.com has an article up entitled 10 Reasons Why High Definition DVD Formats Have Already Failed.

The list makes some compelling arguments about how the format wars currently going on between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray are going to end up making them nothing more than niche players like DVD-Audio and SACD.

Personally, even as a fan of new technology, I’m not interested in either format because I can’t find enough compelling reasons to go with a more expensive format than DVD right now.

Sure, we’re told about how great the technology is and how much more space for content the discs have, but I already see DVDs with plenty of space left over because the studios tend to avoid extra content whenever possible outside of hideously expensive “collector editions” released several months after the original disc.
