CFExpress cards vs XQD memory cards?

What on earth are you talking about, dude?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XQD_card

The format was first announced in November 2010 by SanDisk, Sony and Nikon, and was immediately picked up by the CompactFlash Association for development.[3] The final specification was announced in December 2011.[1][4]On 7 September 2016 the CFA announced the successor of XQD, CFexpress. This new standard uses the same form-factor and interface but uses the NVMe protocol for higher speeds, lower latencies and lower power consumption.

Why are you complaining about Sony here? At least look up simple facts if you are going to add "this is why hate Sony" lines in random topics

Nothing you quote is in conflict with my post. Did you actually read my words?

Were you around when Sony tried to make MemoryStick a "thing"? Because it failed miserably (fact) with respect to industry adoption. And at this point, even Sony doesn't use XQD in their cameras (fact). Only Nikon does (fact). And it's expensive (fact).

I am well aware that SanDisk, Nikon, and Sony collaborated on the development of XQD. Sony licenses their technology, I conclude that anyone else that wants to use XQD will have to pay for the privilege, and it's not clear anyone else is going to pay (supposition).

Your quote regarding CFE is in line with my statements, as well, and Sony does not (yet) appear to play in the CFE arena. One can only wonder why.

So, I did look up and quote simple facts, and you've done nothing to point out any flaws in my statements. Only point out that you didn't understand what I wrote.

Nothing I quoted disproved your claim? WTH? I posted the fact that QXD was introduced by SanDisk, Sony, and Nikon jointly. Where is your source that Nikon and SanDisk pay license fees to Sony? They don't. They jointly released the format. 

Your memory stick example makes your point even weaker as Sony was using the memory stick in their cameras. Sony is not using XQD in their cameras.  Nikon is using XQD in their cameras, and they are one that jointly released the format (along with Soy and SanDisk). Shouldn't you actually be whining about Nikon for announcing and then even using XQD cards in their cameras? 

So here is where we stand: Sony uses memory stick in their cameras and you whine about Sony doing that (even though you don't own Sony cameras and makes no difference to you if they use memory stick). 

Then Nikon uses XQD in their cameras but you still whine about Sony (even though Sony doesn't use XQD card in their camera, not that makes a difference to you as you don't own Sony cameras). 

So regardless you only whine about Sony no matter what happens or what kind of card they use in their cameras? Is that your point? Why didn't you whine about Nikon using XQD in their cameras?
