This might be making a mountain out of a molehill but it is interesting nonetheless.

In a story from DVD Town, at the recent IFA Consumer Show in Berlin, the question was posed to Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, MGM, Sony Pictures, and Disney if they had received money to support Blu-ray Disc.

Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, MGM and Sony Pictures all responded with an affirmative "No." While Disney only said, "No Comment."

It seems odd that they wouldn't have just said "No," but maybe "No Comment" is their standard answer when asked about their business affairs.

The truth of the matter is that there will probably be no winner if the dust ever clears in this war between HD-DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Too much money has been spent on both sides and for now it seems like the formats will happily have to co-exist.

At the same time, with these two formats dueling that should should make things easier on the wallets of the real people who decide these things in the marketplace: the consumers.
