Sony Returns to the Ring

Sony (SNE:NYSE ADR - commentary - research - Cramer's Take) could be among the casualties if an incipient battle over the next generation of DVD technology turns into a full-blown format war.
With sales of DVD movies poised for a slowdown and Sony's electronics division already struggling, the Japanese electronics giant could use another big hit. Next-generation DVD technology -- with its ability to store high-definition video and vast amounts of data -- could be that next big thing. But it won't be if consumers are faced with a confusing choice between a format pushed by Sony and a rival one offered by Toshiba.
