Has anyone ever compared ATRAC3+ to HE-AAC2 at, say, 128Kbit/sec?

And the second question is, why Sony almost abandoned this codec even though it's at least superior to MP3 and Ogg Vorbis? Yes, Sony promotes using this codec in its products, but ATRAC has never been submitted to any standards body, thus it's just a closed codec with zero spread.

I remember when I coded 9 years ago some songs for my then digital Sony player in then probably ATRAC2 96Kbit/sec format, it sounded as good as MP3 at 192KBit/sec.
