Default Blu-ray wins format battle?

Blu-ray wins format battle

TOKYO - Toshiba said Tuesday it will no longer develop, make or market HD DVD players and recorders, handing a victory to rival Blu-ray disc technology in the format battle for next-generation video.

The move would make Blu-ray backed by Sony Corp., Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., which makes Panasonic brand products, and five major Hollywood movie studios the winner in the battle over high-definition DVD formatting that began several years ago.

Huh that's very interesting...is this exactly a reliable source? Like is this definite or what?

Being an HD man myself, does this mean that DVD's from now on will no longer be formatted in the HD style, or just that the DVD players will no longer accept HD formatted DVD's (thus making the need for them obsolete)?

This has been old news for awhile actually, ever since CES a month ago. Plus there was already a thread about this like 4 days ago.

If you followed this kind of stuff this was pretty much a given for about a month, when all the movie studios got behind BluRay

I was very close to buying an HD player with 3 movies plus the mail in offer for 100 bucks on boxing day and I am glad I didn't. I still think I am going to wait and either buy a PS3 when it gets really cheap or hope that Microsoft releases a bluray attachment for my 360.

I don't have an actual quote, but I do recall Microsoft's Peter Moore (who has moved onto EA Games now) saying that if HD-DVD 'lost the war' they wouldn't be opposed to making a Blu-Ray equipped Xbox 360.

Since it is the next generation format, I suspect Sony will be willing to give it to Microsoft considering they would in turn be making a profit off the 360, and any other consoles Microsoft releases.

that would directly contradict selling the PS3 then....the xbox 360 is already ahead of Sony in sales of the game console...why would they further that with releasing the blu ray to microsoft?

Good question, but I don't think Sony would withhold the Blu-Ray, even if it was a competitor.

One thing is for sure, Microsoft will need a next-gen format. Games are going to be getting too big for DVD's soon, if they aren't all ready.
