Ten reasons why HD disc formats already failed

A good list detailing all the ways that the studios have already fucked this up and the technology is doomed from the start. The only thing I’d add is the draconian DRM schemes, especially in the case of Blu-ray. Consumers aren’t going to switch to media that actually does less than the media they have now. Other than that, I think the article does a great job of laying out everything that’s wrong with it.

It’s kind of sad, really – high definition content on a high density disc would be nice, if these guys were capable of designing something with consumers in mind.
