NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Toshiba may not have officially given up on its HD DVD format for high definition DVDs, but the word on the street on Sunday was that rival Sony's Blu-ray had won the war.
That really, even though Toshiba hasn't annouced anything, they are pretty much dead anyways because mainstream people are reading this on site like Yahoo etc.
One customer says "Blu-ray won. It's fantastic and I trust Sony," I wouldn't go so far and say I trust Sony especially given Sony’s history (cough* rootkit) but I am glad the format war is over and can't wait for these articles to stop making it onto N4G.
I want nivrsal to go blu ray just befor HD DVD announce they stop. I would feel better. It feels so good to be on the winning side What does MS pays china money to create XBL game tell you. Its like they themselves think they will lose. lilttle care feel sorry for some people
I want Universal to go blu ray...Just before Toshiba announce they will stop making them. Would feel much better. Feels good to be on winnign side. Hey Why does MS pay chinese companeis to make XBL games They are beign cheap it liek they dotn care and think they have littkle chance of winiing so lets spend as little as we can
Blu-ray hasn't won yet, however tomorrow Toshiba are having a board meeting where they will approve of cenceading defeat and Warner, Paramount and Universal will be released from their contracts which will mean blu-ray has officially won
Toshiba would be foolish not to. I hope they don't give up on HD formats. I like Toshiba, my TV is Toshiba and I do plan on getting their TV with the Cell Processor in it depending on price, so I would like them to make a standalone Blu-ray player.
Not giving up the HDDVD format would be make an epic fail into a super epic fail.
