Next generation console victor to be decided by Hollywood?

Wedbush Morgan Securities is of the mind that the battle between Toshiba's HD-DVD and Sony's Blu-ray disc format could very well dictate the conclusion of the next generation console wars. The report suggests that the film studios could be the ones responsible for deciding the victor in the next generation console war by choosing which format to support in distributing their movies to retail, whether it be on HD-DVD or Sony's Blu-ray technology. Considering that the gaming industry is pulling in as much revenue as the film industry, whichever format Hollywood favors could heavily tip the scales, without a doubt.

Who do you think is going to come out on top of this conflict, HD-DVD or Blu-ray?
