You see this is what I dont get, M$ and other companies have gone to some lengths to force some companies and patent holders to reduce te cost of their licenses arguing that that patent is essential for the given devices and in favor of consumers.
We know they've done this with a lot of patents.
So question is why not do tat with Blu-ray and NTFS, it's clear BD won the format war against HD-DVD, so it's essential to all devices that use disks now.
People use hdds to store a range of personal data, videos, music etc; and as most use Windows and hence NTFS, it is essentila that other devices can support this as well.
So have they done that? Or has it already been done and they are just too cheap to make things convenient for consumers.
We know Łony were talking BS about the Vita memory cards, every Tom Dick and Harry has a microSD card, and those already with $ony devices have Duo cards; yet $ony had the need to create yet another unique card for this single device. But then again, we all now know how greedy $ony are.
