"unlucky early adopters"
more stupid that unlucky. I mean thinking that inferior tech backed by only by Toshiba, and half heartedly by Microsoft could stand any change against better tech and every other hardware manufacturer and the bast majority of the movie industry.
Sometimes it seems people want the underdog to win, and this is what those foolish enough to buy HD DVD were doing.
I doubt many of them will trade in their disks and upgrade to the dreaded Blu, as they still bear a grudge even now..
