They can spin the issue all they want, but when it comes down to all seriousness, the REAL reason they switched sides is because of money. It's not like they weren't enjoying the larger market share that Blu-Ray offered.

i mean it IS blu that is under investigation in europe for shady dealings to get the current studio support. i applaud HD DVD and paramount for this news and it's cool they are allowing current BD movies to sell out. it's an obvious choice if you aren't a sony fanboy that what is better for the consumer is HD DVD for the following reasons

1. bluray still have not finalized their specs yet.
2. stand alone sales are negligible compared to ps3 which seems to be the player of choice
3. stand alone BR players are so expensive no one's buying them and maybe it's because those who research see that they don't want to own an obsoleted BR stand alone soon as BR's ver 1.1 specs come out. sorry, can't upgrade the firmware either
4. cheaper players and cheaper media means the consumer wins in the HD movie format

oh and if you think i am pro HD DVD, i am not. i am neutral and was a hige ps and bluray fanboy but the BDA group need to get their heads out their asses cuz they are SERIOUSLY dropping the ball

Paramount switch to the wrong side because of $150 million. Blu-Ray is out selling HD DVD. I don't own any HD DVD player at all. I got a Playstation 3 already why would I even need a HD DVD. Plus Blu-Ray have more contents.

I wonder what will Paramount say after the deal is over?
