I don't know how much you gamers have been following the Blu-ray vs HD-DVD "format war", but since every PS3 owner has a stake in it, I thought I'd share some interesting developments that have taken place recently…
If you *have* been paying attention, you'll probably remember that about a month ago, Warner Bros. threw its considerable weight behind the Blu-ray Disc format. Then in the last week, both Best Buy and Netflix also chose Blu-ray as their format of choice.
This weekend, in what might be the decisive victory in this "format war," Toshiba - leader of the HD-DVD camp - is reported to be pulling out of the HD-DVD business. Analysts had been saying that a lot of consumers are waiting for a clear format victor before plunking down their hard-earned money on a device. Based on this month's NPD numbers, consumers had seen which way the wind was blowing even before this week.
