I got this news today in my email and was just checking to see if anyone has heard that the format war is really over? Is blue-ray the winner? Is HD-DVD really stopping production? View the link for details.

NHK reported earlier today that the official decision will be made at a board meeting scheduled for early this week.

There is an article on reuters.com about this. It does now, look like there finally is an end to this format war. Now, what does Toshiba do, with all those HD DVD players in the marketplace?

Read this statement from Microsoft & see if you think their involvement was anything but the self serving need to stretch out the war as long as possible so they could get downloads started.

"We do not believe the recent reports about HD DVD will have any material impact on the Xbox 360 platform or our position in the marketplace. As we've long stated, we believe it is games that sell consoles and Xbox 360 continues to have the largest next-gen games library with the most exclusives and best selling games in the industry. We will wait until we hear from Toshiba before announcing any specific plans around the Xbox 360 HD DVD player. HD DVD is one of the several ways we offer a high definition experience to consumers and we will continue to give consumers the choice to enjoy digital distribution of high definition movies and TV shows directly to their living room along with playback of the DVD movies they already own."

The way Microsoft bailed on hd-dvd at CES told me everything I needed to know about their involvement in the format war.
They were only in it as long as it benefited them.

Bummer, sad but true...

I wonder if Toshiba will take my HD-A20 in a part payment on a Toshiba BluRay player? ;-)
