People who bought HD-DVD players were told that they would have lots of media to play on them. Now they're stuck with these worthless machines and have to go out and buy a blue-ray player. The companies who sold them should buy them back for what the people paid for them.
HD-DVD manufacturers should provide compensation to their customers. They have totally stopped selling content for their machines and stopped even making of the machines. Just because Sony's Blu-ray beat them out in the race to provide a new media does not mean they should just quit because they did not like losing. They sold a whole lot of these machines and for them to just roll over and play dead is not a reason for customers to have to suffer a loss.
No, HD-DVD manufacturers should not provide compensation to their customers, because everyone knows what they are buying when they buy a DVD. Those who manufacture HD-DVDs have not done anything that warrants receiving compensation. People are just trying to make a profit off of a big business, because they think the business will not get any sympathy.
No, HD-DVD manufacturers should not provide compensation to their customers, because the manufacturers have not done anything that is warranting of compensation. HD-DVD manufacturers provided a product at a price that people were willing to pay. Demanding compensation is only a way for the consumers to try to extort money from what they think are large corporations.
HD-DVD manufacturers should not be required to compensate their customers because they have no reason to. As a manufacturer, their job is to supply and create HD DVD's. We are the consumers, so it is our job to make purchases that we want from the manufacturers. If we do not like the purchase, we can return it.
