The party for HD DVD is over, literally

From Cnet's "War is hell, particularly when you want to schedule cocktail parties.

The HD DVD Promotional Group had scheduled a cocktail party and a press conference this Sunday evening in Las Vegas to tout the "progress" it has made in high definition video and the ongoing format war with the Blu-ray consortium."

Captain PWN expects Microsoft to release an external Blu-ray disc drive by the end of the year, with HD DVD association announcing to endeavour in "Digital formats" in early 2009. By early 2009 Paramount will be back with Bluray and by then Universal will have already made the switch.

"Ironically, HD DVD players have outsold standalone Blu-ray players."
Does it even matter now how many of the sales were standalone? Seriously, many people got PS2 back then for BOTH games and DVDs and PS2 is considered to be one of the many elements helping DVD to become what it is today so I think saying HD-DVDs outsell standalone Blu-ray players in this article wasn't really neccessary.

PS3 is standalone Blu-Ray player, right?

Warner can care less about how many HD DVD stand alone players is being sold..because their not getting any money from it..All they care about is the money their making from selling disks. Their movies is selling better on the Blu-Ray so they decided to go exclusive and thank them because they ended the war. Now consumer can stick to one format..

Of course the HD-DVD standalone sales are higher. I wonder what percentage of HD-DVD players are not standalone, its not that big.
