After much speculation and comparison to the VHS Betamax wars of old a winner has emerged in the High Def. movie market. Toshiba have officially announced (via) that they are no longer going to produce HD DVD’s. Considering that at least 5 of the major studios have gone with the Sony backed Blueray it’s hardly surprising. Hopefully this will mean that consuming units start coming down in price.
Could HD-DVD be dead? A lot of people rumoured that once a so called “main player” went one way or the other it could sway the market.
With Blockbuster’s decision to go Blu-ray in over 1500 of it’s US stores you’ve got to think it could be a swaying factor.
Still not going to buy one just yet mind you!
Yes, you read it right, it’s official. The films George said didn’t exist anymore now are coming out on DVD!
May the force be with you.
