Blu-Ray vs. HD DVD

Is this the crack in the wall that will decide the fate of Blue-Ray verses HD DVD?

Toshiba may drop HD DVD format - Japanese electronics maker says it has started a review of its HD DVD business, but no decision has been made.

TOKYO (AP) -- Toshiba may pull the plug on its high-definition DVD format but no decision has been made, the Japanese electronics maker said in a statement Monday.

Toshiba Corp. has started a review of its HD DVD business, it said, amid reports by the Wall Street Journal and Kyodo News agency that Toshiba was considering pulling out after losing ground to the competing Blu-ray disc format.

What's your preference?

The Journal, citing people familiar with the situation, reported Sunday that the company is likely to pull out early this week.


  1. Word is that they'll make it official Tuesday morning. The much higher storage capacity on Blu-Ray is what tipped the scales, I think.
