Blockbuster backs Blu-Ray

This news has been all over the place today. I wonder how much Sony had to pay for this? And I wonder if Netflix will get bribed by the other (HD-DVD) camp?

Obviously Sony is trying to avoid a repeat of Betamax, but can they do it and maintain their price point? Wal-Mart has already announced that they'll be selling a $199 HD-DVD player, which means the other big boys will follow suit. Plus, how many people that actually own either format use Blockbuster?
