    Default Winner of the HD format war

    On Feburary 19, Toshiba announced that it will stop prodution on HD-DVD products and players, making Sony's Blu-Ray the winner of the HD format war . They will still give support to the people who have HD-DVD players but they are not going to make anymore.

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/BUSINESS/02/...ion=cnn_latest

    This does not really suprise me as Toshiba has been losing support for the HD-DVD recently. Warner Bros., who were long supporters of the HD-DVD, pulled its support at the Customers Electronics Show in Las Vagas earlier this year (Toshiba reps at the show were so shocked they cancelled the press conferences they were supposed to have at the show! ). New Line Cinema, also a supporter of HD-DVD, pulled its support shortly after Warner Bros did. Soon, other stores and companies began to drop their support also. Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target became exclusively Blu-Ray. Blockbuster and Netflix were mostly Blu-Ray anyway, but they soon became Blu-Ray exclusive as well. Microsoft is thinking about putting Blu-Ray players in the Xbox 360 since they are the dominate ones in the market.

    So, Sony's Blu-Ray is the winner of the format war. I had a feeling that they would win (I even wanted them to win ), but I thought that the competiton would last much longer. What do you guys think?

    These format changes are always designed so that every few years you have to re-buy your entire film collection due to lack of backward compatibility. That's how the film industry keeps from going belly up.
