Well, I guess it is official today. HD-DVD is dead. Recently Best Buy, Netflix and Walmart all announced that they were switching exclusively to Blu-ray, which after Warner Brothers jumped ship was the final nail in that coffin. Toshiba is calling it quits. Which is a shame, because by all accounts HD-DVD was the better format. Much like Sony’s Playstation 3 comparision to XBox 360, having the more impressive specs doesn’t exactly translate into a better product. Let’s just hope that with Blu-ray now being the sole format they can work on making it better so that everyone can get a Blu-ray player and enjoy that HD goodness.
