with the Betamax episode, but it seems they think their technology is so innovative, and so desirable that we'll all fall headlong in love with their products and never want to change from their own format.

They're probably right about the falling in love part - nobody (apart from Apple) knows how to make objects of desire quite like Sony - but they really should understand that the market is not what it was ten years ago. Try to impose file formats on the world and you'll see the world paying you back - Adobe found that out with PDF.
