DVD Format Wars!

Sony is being a pain in negotiations for an industry standard for the next generation DVD format. Here's the thing- their format (Blu-ray) requires a new player to use it at all. The competing format is backward compatible- you only need a new player to see the content in HDTV. Which do you think will win? It's ironic that Sony was the inventor of Betamax video tapes, and that this story ws found on a site called betanews.
