Toshiba Officially Announced Withdrawal of HD DVD

It's official. Hold off buying that HD DVD with your HDTV because the HD DVD format is now officially dead and thus ends the format war. However, if you already bought a player you don't have to worry because Toshiba will continue the after sales service of their HD DVD already sold.

The Blu-ray by Sony has emerged as the winner, however, Sony's stand alone Blu-ray players still cost around 60k. I guess it would be another few years before we see Blu-ray disc prices go down, hopefully, someone from China will be able to boot leg a BD disc so movie studios will be forced to lower their prices just like what they did with DVD.
