Whole Blu World: The Format War's Bloody Aftermath
Favorite quote:
On the studio side, the drawn-out conflict was sapping both HD disc and DVD sales, as consumers waited for a victor and slowed down DVD purchases in anticipation. Everybody was losing, even the winners. It got so bad that we have reason to believe Sony didn't just urge Best Buy, Netflix and Wal-Mart to go exclusively Blu, but went so far as to ask Toshiba directly to please pull out.
And since nobody does in that business anything just for the asking, Sony paid Toshiba to pull out...
That sounds plausible.

Makes sense... the only one that didn't get any money was Microsoft and Columbia Pictures. At least they got VC-1 (but not HDi) into every Blu-Ray player out there.
