It's official. HD DVD is dead.

TOKYO--Toshiba Corporation today announced that it has undertaken a thorough review of its overall strategy for HD DVD and has decided it will no longer develop, manufacture and market HD DVD players and recorders. This decision has been made following recent major changes in the market. Toshiba will continue, however, to provide full product support and after-sales service for all owners of Toshiba HD DVD products.

the funny part is that you actually think it was an inferior format. ignorance is bliss, eh?

the answer to that is no, no it's not, you muppet.

I think they are happy it's over, not that Blu Ray actually won.

I would have liked to see HD DVD win, but oh well.

I'm kind of worried about prices now. BD prices will stay high for longer amount of time.

Spose its good its over, dunno about which format is better.
Tbh I dont really care, no plans of buying a player anyhow, but having two formats seems confusing, one standard is what it should be.

Wouldnt be suprised if the the next format battle is just around the corner either.

I really wanted HD-DVD to win, but really, as long as it plays a good quality HD version of a film, who gives a rip? BR obviously costs more than HD-DVD. But give it a little time and prices will go down or something else will come out that is 5x better. I won't be going Blu for a little while.

R.I.P. HD-DVD

Tell me about it. You would think there granny died. And most of them never even had a HD DVD player yet it was there format of choice, well maybe you should have supported it more than just ranting on message boards. :rolleyes:
