Anyone of the opinion that Microsoft never really cared about this format war despite backing HD-DVD? If they really cared, don't you think they would have started just throwing in HD-DVD drives in all Xbox 360s (even if only for movies)?

Some say that Microsoft really wants to push digital HD distribution over the tubes and others claim that MS simply wanted to back HD-DVD to put pressure on Sony and slow PS3 sales. What do you guys think?

I think MS "wants" internet distro for a number of financial reasons. Not only will it strengthen the use of Microsoft's content protection schemes, but it will enable Microsoft to provide their much sought after "seamless" customer base from IP generation to presentation...for both Microsoft's software and hardware products.

It will become more difficult for non-MS users to acquire and play IP protected by proprietary schemes, programming, and hardware.

Eventually, the "pay-per-bit" vision will be firmly in place.
