Technically - yes

Financially - no

Basically VHS have multiple suppliers and soon was the only one that rental stores (remember them?) bothered keeping much range in. The rest is obvious history...sadly for Sony, they didn't learn and tried with Minidisk and memory sticks that no other used, both were business failures really.
