The War is Over

The format war is officially over. Toshiba announced it was shutting HD-DVD down, but would support all currant players out there. They further said they had no plans of making Blu-ray players, but who really thinks they will stick to that in the long term? Universal also announced it would support Blu-ray. Paramount and Dream Works should follow suit soon since their 18 month exclusive contract is now void.
No word yet from Microsoft when they’ll get a Blu-ray player out for the XBox 360, but they have been hinting of late they would release one of Blu-ray won the war. This is supposedly why they didn’t make HD-DVD built in, to wait and see where the market went, that and cost issues.
