"One strength for Toshiba and the HD DVD format is that it has the backing of Microsoft, which uses HD DVD players as a peripheral for its Xbox 360 game console. Microsoft sold 4.5 million Xbox units in 2007, nearly twice as many units as Sony's Playstation 3, which comes equipped with a Blu-ray player."
"But the increasingly difficult question for Toshiba is what consumers will play on those HD-DVD units if they buy them. Just two weeks ago, Warner Bros. Studios announced that it was dropping the HD-DVD format entirely and would produce movies in the Blu-ray format alone. The move leaves just three companies -- DreamWorks, Paramount and Universal -- still releasing Hollywood titles on HD DVD."
