No More HD-DVD

Postby Savage » Tue Feb 19, 2008 3:43 pm

Weapon: Diffraction Sword
The TransFormers HD-DVD may have just become a collectable. Toshiba officially announced this morning that they will stop producing HD-DVD products. Blu-Ray has won.

"Toshiba will begin to reduce shipments of HD DVD players and recorders to retail channels, aiming for cessation of these businesses by the end of March 2008. Toshiba also plans to end volume production of HD DVD disk drives for such applications as PCs and games in the same timeframe, yet will continue to make efforts to meet customer requirements. The company will continue to assess the position of notebook PCs with integrated HD DVD drives within the overall PC business relative to future market demand."

I wonder if TF will come out on Blu-Ray now? And does this mean the HD-DVD version of TF will now increase in value?

((Note to Mods: I placed this here so it might be seen by the News Crew, and its slight relation to TFs, but please feel free to move it over to General Discussion if you find that more suitable))

Ah, give it some time. Remember when DVD came out? Overpriced, and you couldn't find much on it...then WHAAM...VHS disappears and DVD took over. This'll probably end up the same way 2 or three years down the road.
