Okay we are done.
It is being reported today by Reuters that Toshiba has given up on the HD-DVD and is going to give Blu-Ray a free run. They will continue to sell HD-DVD players until everyone stops buying them but they are no longer putting any money into research and development for HD-DVD.
This decision is estimated to cost them hundreds of millions of dollars in expected HD-DVD revenue, but after the announcement by Wal-Mart on Friday, that they will only be stocking Blu-Ray, it was only a matter of time.
Personally I am just glad the war is over. Now we can start betting on how long it will take Microsoft to release a Blu-Ray add on.
