A local "SuperStore Canada" manager has informed me of Microsofts plan in terms of how the format war will turn out. The manager in question asked the Microsoft Representative of his branch on which he thinks will win, but here's where the twist comes in.
It seems Microsoft has no future plans on winning this format war, but rather, wanting it to simply "Blow over".
The Microsoft representative had informed this manager that Microsoft does not intend to win the format war. They are leading the public to a road with a brick wall at the end.
Microsoft, at the moment, is "secretly" developing yet a different format, but from what the representative had also mentioned, the new format will no longer be in the shape of a "Disc".
So, after all said and done, the manager had mixed feelings about Microsofts plot, but he did also know that he couldn't change things, so he did not ask the representative any further questions.
This information was shared with me personally, but for safety reasons, I will not share the name of the manager, or for the matter, share the name of the representative.
For now, this will be classified as a rumor, but there will always be that slight possibility in the near future.
