Default At last Paramount finally gone back to Blu!!!!

Now the whole Hollywood studios are behind Blu-ray.

Quote:
Paramount Home Entertainment quietly came onboard via a statement sent exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday: "We are pleased that the industry is moving to a single high-definition format, as we believe it is in the best interest of the consumer," the statement reads. "As we look to (begin) releasing our titles on Blu-ray, we will monitor consumer adoption and determine our release plans accordingly."

So is anyone left on the red team, or does that mean that everyone has switched over?

I'm just glad to see 1 standard emerge. All the negatives on Blu-Ray are just software that can be improved/fixed.

Now we will see that 1% adoption rate skyrocket over the next couple years.
I know many, many people who were just waiting for there to be only one.

Well not necessarly. They can still make HD-DVD discs if they want and then go back to DVD discs. I was just wondering if all of the major studios have officially announced they will make blu-ray discs or if they haven't decided yet. They may try another form of distribution.
