HD DVD Promotional Group Issues Form Letter Response

After yesterday’s announcement that Netflix is dropping HD DVD and Best Buy will promote Blu-ray, the HD DVD Promotional Group issued what seems to be their form letter response:

We have long held the belief that HD DVD is the best format for consumers based on quality and value, and with more than 1 million HD DVD players on the market, it’s unfortunate to see Netflix make the decision to only stock Blu-ray titles going forward. While the Best Buy announcement says they will recommend Blu-ray, at least they will continue to carry HD DVD and offer consumers a choice at retail.

Is it just me, or does that ‘at least’ postfix sounds desperate and pitiful? HD DVD needs to go on Jerry Springer. “Sure, he left me for another woman and told everyone he loves her more. But he said I can still cook for him and do his laundry! At least I can still be part of his life!” HD DVD needs some friends to sit them down and get them to move on. Someone stage an intervention.
