But when your format is in the exact same position, you call the payments "incentives" without a trace of remorse.
The end justifies the means. Just like Sony's approach to DRMed media over the years.
You see, this is precisely the point you keep missing. I said you are "probably" right...and in no way have I seen any evidence that can validate what you are claiming might be happening. Also, I used the word "incentives" simply to poke fun at your clamoring in regards to the $150 million dollar bribe.
If anything, Microsoft changed the way the game was played, and they are simply getting the favor returned for their actions in bribery, that is, if there was any "incentives"...or maybe it is simply karma coming back to bite them in the ass.
Moreover, at the very least, Warner has given HD DVD consumers the courtesy of 8 months to let their decision of exclusivity settle with consumers, not like Paramount who took Microsoft's payment and went with it the next day, despite the majority of consumers buying Blu-ray.
I know you like the word "hypocrisy" and all and how you attempt to label me and others here as such, but give it a rest will you. You're calling me and others hypocrites on an event that hasn't even happened, just one you suppose happened.
Furthermore the only "tard"-like logic is thinking that Sony is the BDA after the almost 4 years we've been discussing this.
