Toshiba HD DVD sales hit 1 million in North America

LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Japan's Toshiba Corp said on Sunday it sold 1 million HD DVD digital video recorders in North America last year, driven by demand for Internet-delivered content.

Toshiba, reeling from Warner Bros studio's announcement that it would exclusively release high-definition DVDs using the rival Blu-ray format instead of Toshiba's HD DVD technology, sought to stress instead the potential of its recent alliance with Sharp Corp on TV panels.

Toshiba executives made the comments at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Kinda late. Still, Toshiba did put up a good fight.

Yeah and all it did was prolong the format war and provide a million owners with an expensive upconverting DVD player.

Wow, I guess this answers the question "Will there still be the endless Bloodmask HD-DVD SPAM littering everyday?" even after the format is dead...

1 million fools. Fools aren't people and they don't deserve compassion nor their money back. That's what happens for choosing a blatantly inferior format. Seriously, why would anyone? I rather wait 2 years for Blu-ray to become affordable than let an inferior format win just because I couldn't wait a little longer.

It reminds me of those that bought a 360 just because PS3 was expensive, as if they had nothing to do with their lives, like play PS2 or what not.
