Why you should support HD-DVD and not Blu-Ray

Yep, that's right.

Old Blu-Ray players won't correctly play new Blu-Ray discs come October.

Nice work! Now... why are all the studios going with Blu-Ray instead of HD-DVD again? HD-DVD may have some problems with some disks being marginal, but it's at least a stable standard that will play everything you throw at without becoming obsolete a year after you bought a $700 player.
