HD-DVD is Dead

A press release from Toshiba has confirmed that HD-DVD is dead. Toshibia ( 東芝 ) has decided it will no longer develop, manufacture and market HD-DVD players and recorders. This spells victory for Sony ( ソニー ) and it’s Blu-ray Format. Of course consumers are the big decider in the end, will they be bothered, time will tell.

    I’ll say. I saw HD Dvd’s yesterday dropped in price from $35 –> $8. The only thing is, most people have just gotten use to Dvd’s over video tape, I don’t think they want to update their entire movie/tv show colection to Blue-Ray instantly. Well, I know I sure as hell don’t.
