A few days ago, Engadget posted a concise version of the high definition format war between Blu-ray and HD DVD. It’s a tale of dirty deals, upsets, streams being crossed and big gambles.
At the end of the tale, it tells of the biggest gamble paying off: the inclusion of Blu-ray in the PlayStation 3. This, of course, stirs up the question: “What if Microsoft crammed an HD DVD drive in the XBOX 360?” Where would we be today? I guess this is another one of those “What if” questions which we’ll be left unanswered.
