HD DVD bid its farewell earlier this morning at a Tokyo press conference where Toshiba officially discontinued its HD DVD businesses.
Though Toshiba has come forward and made clear its stance on the now concluded format war, Microsoft, another assumed backer of HD DVD has so far kept fairly quiet. From the only statement to come from Microsoft, it seems that Microsoft isn't all too fussed about HD DVD's painful death.
However, Microsoft reiterates its commitment to give consumers high definition movies. Hold on, if HD DVD is dead and buried and Blu-ray isn't available on the Xbox 360, what exactly does Microsoft mean?
As movie director Michael Bay stated in his public blog toward the end of 2007, "Time will tell and you will see the truth." Has time now revealed the truth?
