CNN takes a look at Toshiba's rumored plans to discontinue it's HD-DVD support.
This would be hard for Toshiba to spin this news around regardless of how you take it. Every tech site is touting HD DVD dead. And consumers are been told this as well. The only thing left for them to do would be to announce its demise and start making BD players to recoup losses.
A month ago I owned a 32" CRT TV and a 360 and a Wii.
Within the last two weeks I've purchased a 42" 1080p Toshiba Regza LCD, and a Playstation 3.
Across the Universe looks mighty fine on Blu-ray =)
My PSN tag is the same as my LIVE username, DeltaP42, feel free to add me!!! I need folks to play Motorstorm with!!!
hahaha thast good sh!t! ...In the last month i got a sony surround sound system (1600Watt) and a Bravia X 46". I am not lettting anything spoil my MGS4 experience! haha:P
Blu-Ray the "likely winner"
Blu-Ray is the WINNER
And thats all i gotta say about That
No shiet ? ur serious ?
CNN u better stick ur head out from ur ass, where have u been all the time ?
I love the media.... they're so biased and so blind by their payee that they're not willing to ever give a sony backed format a chance. It's always
"can the playstation brand stay afloat?"
"The playstation brand has managed to hang on"
"How has the playstation brand survived"
"Blu-ray is the likely winner... but "
But nothing... it's over, it's finished, it's the end of the road and line... deal with it! Sony took a giant P*$$ all over your format and that's that. Walk the walk and hang your head in shame while you do it.
The media just needs to be honest and tell it like it is. That's why I'm such a huge success. I'm full of win and truth and success and fame.
sure this place likes to keep me down and take bubbles for no reason but that's all because they're jelly of me.
I agree man,
bubbles for you
The Sun "likely to set later today"
My hot water "likely to be turned off" later today!
and with it will come of the moon and the chaging of the tide as well.
Still ... the news isn't news in and of itself but, rather that it is hitting a larger and more confused market then us here at N4G. I know it's dead, you know it's dead but, 5-10 people will call me today saying CNN said it's dead. Those are the people that matter in this war.
More likely tomorrow from CNN and other reports.
I don't think we need many more ways to say that Blu-Ray is pretty much tops. I think we can slow down on the daily "HD-DVD is dead" submissions now. How about some new info on some hot games?
Im new to n4g but i agree, there seem to be more threads relating to DVD formats than games. Its all a bit confusing.
remember ... today is the day GDC starts. Game info will roll in over the next week of two like it hasn't in some time. I love this site over GDC, TGS and E3. So much cool stuff to read.
"CNN: Blu-Ray the "likely winner"... uhhh.. you think? Why is it that the mainstream are a) Way off(mass effect) or b) late (this). No wonder the internet is replacing newspapers and tv news.
plus most mainstream news won't release info like this until they know they won't look stupid a month later.
mmmm.. you mean like what they said about mass effect that was completely false? just to later "look stupid"?
I'm not saying they're always right ... just that they're safer. More "rumors" get posted online then get allowed to the airwaves. Plus ... the thing with ME isn't on the same scale as an entire format war anyway.
my sh!t is "likely" to be brown when it comes out later on but hey you never know maybe it will be turquoise
Start eating spinach.
Red Gatorade = Red
Purple Gatorade = Green
i really do want to ask but whatever- that was a really disturbing comment
Last year the FOOLS all said: "Blu-Ray will kill the PS3." Then: "Is the PlayStation brand doomed?" Then: "Poor PS3 sales across America" I enjoyed proving those BUFFOONS wrong! Have no fear, Sony Soldiers, these are the headlines you can expect to hear in 2008: "PerfectionStation 3- the biggest comeback in videogame history!" "Sony begin to destroy the Xbox brand!" "Xbot PIGS suicide increase by 78%!" MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
the rain is "likely" to hit the ground
I know eh W0LF? I hate it when sites state the obvious...bubble+ for u
Was there any question of this? Did anybody doubt that this would happen? Please, tell me there were none here that thought HD-DVD stood a chance...
theMART, wageslave and cooke15 were just some of the ones that thought "teh HD-DVD iz teh pwnage"
"likely" response from CNN
PS3 barely survived, so barely that they outsold the console that the media tried to claim was going to run away this gen. Well... the XB360 is now in the dead last place in sales. In next year the PS3 will overtake it, if not earlier. And then the fat lady will have sung again. How about that "first to get 10M will win" statement? Seems like it turned out be in line with the so-called reviewers and analysts bias.
