And just what "offering" is this? I'm all for a unification of sorts but there is little real information on how that can happen coming from this Sony exec.
Here is what I think a good unification would be.
Both formats use a blue laser. That being said. I don't think it says anywhere that the blue laser can't read the red laser DVD content. (but red wont read the blue) So, I think that if all the Hardware DVD players were made using the blue laser technology from the start, sony would have the players out there, (couple pennies per player on the patent) and HD-DVD, and Blue DVD's could both be used as they were needed. THis would be in everybody's best interest, The Studios, the Consumer, and the 2 competing camps.
