Universal Drops HD DVD Exclusivity

TheGamersThought.com has reported that Universal Studios will no longer support HD DVD exclusively as per EGM's March 2008 issue. Picture of the story covered in EGM's magazine has been scanned by TheGamersThought.com

Update:

Original Story: http://www.thegamersthought.com/2008/02/breaking-news-egm-confirms-universals.html

This topic will not be considered rumor being that the image scanned provides proof of what was said on EGM's (a notable Ziff Davis publication) most recent magazine. The post has yet to be denied or approved by Universal and will remain the way it is until Universal states otherwise.

The writer of the post, Yaris Gutierrez, has noted to me that a Universal PR has stated to him that "Universal is not commenting on any such rumors or speculation" bringing forward much more controversial thoughts/conclusions.

Universal better release an official statement soon yea or nay. The longer the rumor stays out their the more it hurts their HD-DVD sales.

toshiba will probably respond with free hd-dvd players. lol I would take one for free as long as i can still get my 10 free movies if not sorry. Common toshiba you can do it free hd-dvd players and free movies. what more do you have to lose.

Read the article, and the scan linked within. This blogger is just making assumptions based on the news we've already heard in January.

This isn't an announcement from Universal about going Blu-ray. This story really shouldn't be approved.

I'm sure Universal will make the announcement soon, but this blog post is just jumping the gun.
