Microsoft Downs Sony and Blu-Ray


Blu-RayChris Lewis, the regional vice president for Microsoft in Europe, the Middle East and Africa recently had some nasty comments on Sony’s new Blu-Ray DVD format.

It should be interesting to see what rebukes towards Microsoft Sony can come up with.  I mean its not hard to down anything Microsoft, but we are hoping Sony can come back with something interesting.  Past that Betamax wasn’t that bad - it was overpriced; but who pays attention to price when you get an increase in quality?
