Default Re: Warner to go Blu-ray exclusive May 2008!

I think this is the end for HD-DVD but I wouldn't expect them to just roll over and die. A lot of people invested a lot of money in the tech and I don't think they'll just wave a white flag and leave it at that.

Having said that, its about time the war ended. The price of players is down to a reasonable amount ($200) and both are producing good quality films now (BR seems to have caught HD-DVD up in this field even if HD-DVD is still slighlty ahead). The only thing slowing the sales is that you have to have two technologies to watch all the films. Now is the time for one to slowly vanish and let the other consolidate the market. Even if that does have to be Sony.
