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.

Toshiba will begin to reduce shipments of HD DVD players and recorders to retail channels, aiming for cessation of these businesses by the end of March 2008. Toshiba also plans to end volume production of HD DVD disk drives for such applications as PCs and games in the same timeframe, yet will continue to make efforts to meet customer requirements. The company will continue to assess the position of notebook PCs with integrated HD DVD drives within the overall PC business relative to future market demand.

There is actually a big difference. DVDs offered many advances over VHS. People wanted the ability to skip chapters, not having to worry about rewinding at the end of the movie, widescreen support, higher resolutions, perfect picture pausing, all the extra stuff added, ect..

The only real advantage of the HD formats is the higher resolutions. The rest is just fluff.
