No, just that you finally can compare the two instead of just going by what viral marketers are saying. The issue is not the PS3 vs the Toshiba player. It is HD DVDs BW at 30mbps does not have what it needs (even BD at 48mbps is a bit tight for my perfect world) and to further exasperate the issue some of that 30mbps is used for secondary video (and since HD DVD had no other talking point but we could do PiP and BD could not, it was overused).

Don’t forget in the end these are just bottles. And like any bottle it does not matter much. You put water in it you get water out, you put the best wine that is what you will get out, but the bottle will affect how much liquid you can hold and how fast you can pour it out. They both use the same codecs and in that sense they are the same. The difference is that since BD has higher bitrate and larger capacity by definition BD it can do (minimum) anything HD DVD can but the opposite is not true. For example when WB released Happy Feet they used lossless audio on the HD DVD but not the BD (their reason was that the HD DVD was more expensive), this was a political reason and there was no physical reason they could not have put the same content on the BD. On the other hand if you look at Nature’s Journey the HD DVD uses 27mbps VC-1 for video and lossy audio, while the BD uses 37mbps VC-1 and lossless audio, obviously no matter how much Rbfilms would have wanted to put the BD version on HD DVD they can not.
