Lets be real, they didn't really do all they could to support HD DVD.
You're right - M$ has a lot of weight and money to throw at anything it wants - HD-DVD could've been included in that. They obviously didn't think it was money well spent, or they would've helped it. We'll see what they were planning in the near future.

MS also has a policy to completley deny all speculation and rumors until THEY are ready to announce it.

This means nothing. Anyone remember the ELITE? Officially denied by MS 3 weeks before it was officially announced....
