The Format war is sluggishly drawing to an end and smiles are beginning to fade from the faces of HD DVD enthusiasts. The cruelest blow to the fate of the HD DVD format was dealt by Warner brothers when it withdrew its backing of the format a few days ago. Paramount is reportedly preparing to withdraw its support as well which leaves only universal pictures as the only film maker in support of the troubled format. There need not be any other explanation on my part for anyone to see that the future of HD DVD is bleak. Sony is the biggest supporter of blue ray technology and has singlehandedly raised the much needed support that the blue ray format has received. Other electronic firms such as Samsung have preferred to remain neutral by manufacturing dual players that are capable of playing discs in both format. Warner brothers' move brings to five the number of motion picture makers that now support blue ray. In fact unless Toshiba can make any headway in it's newest campaign to boost support for the format, an innovation may have died even before it was fully born.

You will be informed before plans are eventually finalized.
