Not a good sign for HD-DVD.
This isn't really news. I said Warners was for sale weeks ago. Last week Sony made a counter offer and MS is going to double it. So Sony will have to counter again.
MS, Toshiba, and Sony all know that the winner of the Warner auction is going to seal this war up. MS is more than willing to buy the win too.
I have no doubt that Warner is going HD DVD because I've heard the amount MS is willing to spend to make it happen and there is just no way Sony would do that. So far they aren't even halfway to what MS is willing to spend. Sony just doesn't have the funds to justify it.
