Blu Ray and HD have dropped to the same price, I still think the PS3's marketing disaster will kill Blu Ray.

Plus, an all-encompassing High Def-DVD player (plays Blu Ray, HD, and old DVDs) will hit the market in a year or two, i'm sure of it.

Just about everything for television was done on Beta (shows, video, commercials, etc.) because of its higher quality.

VHS took off because it was cheap!

Completely right.

It's Sony Playstation, and Sony Blu-Ray

OK, Blu-Ray was developed by some companies together, but Sony has the greatest share in it.

The heavy dose of copyright protection in HD-DVD and Blu-Ray could potentially doom both formats. HDCP has such a heavy hardware requirement that if you are missing even one aspect of its requirements, you'll automatically be downgraded to 480p. Don't have an HDMI connection on your expensive HDTV? 480p! Have an SPDIF audio connection on your computer, instead of a rare optical audio cable whose name completely escapes me? 480p!

Both formats essentially treat their consumers as if they were all criminals, while the real criminals will always find a way around it anyway.

But not BetaMAX. Television uses BetaCAM. Two different and completely incompatible formats.

However, even BetaCAM is starting to envision its own death, with the long advent of DVCAM/DVCPRO, and now tapeless formats like XDCAM and P2.

Personally, as someone who also works in television, I despise Beta anything.
