Merely days after Sony's Howard Stringer was scrutinized for calling the format war a "stalemate
," the exec has apparently decided to tweak his tone a bit. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter
, Stringer was quoted as saying that Blu-ray had "the momentum and the scale" it needed to eventually reign victorious over its rival. Additionally, he noted that Blu-ray was "just a better format," and he even went so far as to tout BD's excellent security features, which were effectively subverted
just weeks ago after being hailed as practically impenetrable
. Furthermore, he didn't seem worried over the new, lower prices associated with standalone HD DVD players, but who knows, maybe he'll be singing a different tune next week.
