"The Playstation 3 was a Trojan Horse," said Disney Studios Home Entertainment President Bob Chapek.

Toshiba Corp. on Tues. announced that it would exit the HD DVD business following a rash of support for the Blu-ray disc format.

Yes, but it's a beautiful BLACK trojan horse, that's also a KICKASS video gaming system, DVD upscaler, and multi media POWERHOUSE.
