Dudes.. there is a correction. It seems they translated it wrong. It's not HD-DVD it's Blu-ray HD DVD. :headexplode:

$299 standalone BD decks seem unlikely but we'll see.

The translation was actually blue laser HD DVD. This was specified because in China they have red laser high definition disc as a format, too. Nothing to do with "Blu-Ray" which would simply read as "Blu-Ray."

In addition the press release also talks about being able to press the discs on the same equipment as regular DVD, which is not possible with Blu-Ray.

It easier to identify which side it is, I searched HD-DVD members list here, TDK is not a member of HD-DVD group and then I searched Blu-ray members list here, TDK is listed as a member of Board of Directors for Blu-ray Disc Assocation.

It mean 2 million $299 cheap Blu-ray players for Wal-Mart. :D

Thats solid proof that its Blu-Ray and not HD-DVD... it for some reason it ends up being HD-DVD then TDK jumped ship...
