Sony Left Holding the Bag Again?

Derrick Story :: thinks that Sony’s DVD-recording standards might face opposition from rivals ala Minidisc, BetaMAX, Memory Stick. Hmm! Here is what he has to say: “I’ve been following the DVD-R vs. the DVD+RW competition rather closely. At the moment Samsung, Toshiba, Hitachi, Matsushita (Panasonic), Pioneer, and Apple are producing equipment using the DVD-R/RW format. Microsoft, Sony, and a host of others are behind the DVD+RW format, although Sony seems to be hedging its bets by showing support for DVD-R also. Depending on whose facts your believe, DVD-R and DVD+RW seem to be in a real horse race for popularity among consumers. In the end, I think DVD-R would prevail, but I don’t want it to come to that.”
