You fail to understand that if they ship a box that says playstation on it and plays blueray discs then blueray wins because people will almost buy PS3s based on the name alone and thus blueray market share jumps tenfold.

Could of been a different situation had MS launched with HD-DVD drive and lets face it whos gonna buy a stupid addon drive for their 360.

However this is all fine because blueray is the superior format and deserves to win whether you like sony or not.
