BETA LIVES! (AND THEN DIES)
Who'd of thunk it--it seems Sony has continued to make Beta VCRs this whole time. This, two decades after the legendary VHS-Beta format wars, in which VHS was the clear winner, at least in North America. This article doesn't say where these Beta machines have been selling; I know it hasn't been in the U.S. Probably in South America and maybe Asia.

Even funnier coincidence, I was just talking about the old VHS-Beta conflict with someone at work yesterday.
