The War is over
The War is over and it is completely official. HD DVD is dead. That is to say the consortium that produced the HD DVD the format is dead.
High Definition is however very much alive but now only in the shape of Blu-Ray.
Most people will already be very aware of this fact, however there are still a couple of niggling things that mean you should hold off just a bit longer before buying that Blu-Ray player.
The most important one of these is the fact that there are still a firmware update or two to come our way. These are the scripts that run on the machine to make them deal with the extras correctly and connect to the internet the way that HD DVD did. This should be sorted soon, but in the mean time, only PS3 players will be updated easily.
So, the rest of you..... "stand by your beds - and be patient!"
