It seems that Sony have won, Toshiba announced today that they have begun winding down all production of players and hardware.
This is a sad day, as in my personal opinion, HD-DVD was the better format. But hey, I have both, I only have 10 HD-DVD titles, so it’s not cost me the earth at least.
The Microsoft HD-DVD drive for the XBox 360 will just have to make do with the few titles I do have, and hey one of them is Transformers and I have the Bourn box set as well, so it’s all good.
It’s a pity that Blu Ray won though, Sony’s draconian values obviously were liked more by the studio’s than Toshiba’s more open format.
