  It’s Official – Toshiba has Given up on HD-DVD

After a weekend full of speculation, Toshiba has announced they are stopping production of HD-DVD players.

This follows announcements that Netflix planned to drop HD-DVD as well as Blockbuster and Best Buy.

The good news is that this probably means all HD-DVD players and HD-DVDs will be on sale shortly.




  Goodbye, HD-DVD

In addition to the news that Netflix will be dropping HD-DVD in favor of Blu-ray, we now have two other companies joining the Blu-ray bandwagon.

The New York Times reports that Best Buy, clearly an influential power in this field, will be “strongly recommending” Blu-ray to customers as the high definition format of choice.

Further digging the hole is the news that Blockbuster will also be joining the Blu-ray bandwagon. Hacking Netflix reported the news, and received confirmation from a Blockbuster spokesperson who said that they had 250 stores with HD-DVD, and 1700 with Blu-ray. They clarified by saying that the 250 were the first stores they rolled both high definition formats out to, where they watched customer rental trends and determined Blu-ray was the clear winner.

I guess this means I’m buying a Blu-ray player or PS3.
