Point being? Sony's PR folks are screwing the pooch, much like they did in the Beta-Max - VHS fiasco. Perhaps, no one works there now who remembers that?

As far as I understand it was the price difference between vhs and betamax that made the difference. Beta max was used as a professional format up until pretty recently. Sony has surely made a lot of mistakes (DRM etc.) but this wasn't one of them.
