Just saying it hasn't been confirmed yet... trust me, I hope it is so the coffin can be close on HD-DVD, but it isn't set in stone yet.

Yes--denied. Either way, I placed an order for the Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-ray player to keep my XA2 company.

I had just fallen on hd dvd's side, but im actually glad that warner went exclusively with bd, I just want this format war to be over so my dad can get a 50" 1080p plasma, a high def dvd player, and some bomb ass speakers.

Here some confirmations that Paramount and Universal will expect to make an announcement soon as the arrangements complete.

Quote:
Well... we've had SOME confirmation this morning of the details of the Financial Times story from last night. While the studio isn't yet commenting, reliable industry sources are telling us that Paramount is indeed preparing to end their HD-DVD support and announce a return to the Blu-ray fold. Details are currently being finalized, and an announcement is expected as soon as they're complete. Paramount's first new Blu-rays will almost certainly include many of those titles that were cancelled last year, but that were already packaged and ready for shipping, so you could see them in stores very quickly once the studio announces.

Meanwhile, sources are telling us that Universal has also been talking with the BDA, and is looking to follow Paramount and Warner's lead as soon as possible.

On a related note, Times Online in the U.K. is now reporting that as many as 20 additional firms currently backing HD-DVD are also considering defection in the wake of Warner's Friday announcement, including Fujitsu, Lenovo, Kenwood and Pony Canyon (which is a major Japanese film and music studio).

Yes I know it rumour outside the scene but it is real behind the scene, like Warner denied rumour Blu-ray exclusive few months ago so it was true came from insider sources.

I wish they'd stop messing around and cut to the chase, so myself and thousands of others know where they stand.

All of the "No comments" = Not good for HD DVD

Yeah, "no comment" doesn't sound too good for HD-DVD. I posted in other thread that HBO has confirmed they're dropping HD-DVD and go Blu-ray only.
