TOSHIBA DUMPS HD DVD

Company Remains Focused on Championing Consumer Access to High Definition Content

TOKYO--Toshiba Corporation today announced that it has undertaken a thorough review of its overall strategy for HD DVD and has decided it will no longer develop, manufacture and market HD DVD players and recorders. This decision has been made following recent major changes in the market. Toshiba will continue, however, to provide full product support and after-sales service for all owners of Toshiba HD DVD products.

HD DVD was developed to offer consumers access at an affordable price to high-quality, high definition content and prepare them for the digital convergence of tomorrow where the fusion of consumer electronics and IT will continue to progress.

"We carefully assessed the long-term impact of continuing the so-called 'next-generation format war' and concluded that a swift decision will best help the market develop," said Atsutoshi Nishida, President and CEO of Toshiba Corporation. "While we are disappointed for the company and more importantly, for the consumer, the real mass market opportunity for high definition content remains untapped and Toshiba is both able and determined to use our talent, technology and intellectual property to make digital convergence a reality."

But it's likely that those studios will also re-release their movies in Blu-Ray format with additional contents.

Studios like universal? what do you mean, do you somehow think for a minute that they will refuse to release these films on blu ray?

if you want a copy of this film, do yourself a favour get it on dvd, that way when your failed format player packs up you will still be able to watch it, without having to scour charity shows and car boot sales in an attempt to find someone else selling a very costly mistake.

Oh go and play on your PS3 little boy!!:w00t:


Yes, HD-DVD has been confirmed dead by Toshiba themselves, but I am sure that there will be alot of HD-DVD bargains to be had over the next few days / weeks. If you support blu ray and only blu ray, then don't bother with the HD-DVD threads. No point in voting them cold. I for one will be looking at all the HD-DVD deals as I have a player capable of palying said disks and I'm going to try and make the most of the bad news.

Toshiba have stated that after sales care will continue for all HD-DVD players, so if it packs up no one will have to scour charity shops. Of course those people who bought a profile 1.0 Blu-Ray player might be selling them to said charity shops once they realise they cant access half of the features of the 2.0 discs.

But unless I'm mistaken, there are no currently available BD2.0 players and no BD2.0 discs. I think 1.1 players have only just come out in the last few months. It will be a couple of years before 2.0 players and discs have been established as the norm and then the film itself will still play, you'll just be limited on the extra features (and tbh, I'm not too bothered about not being able to access Transformers III ringtones and online content).

There is no point worrying about future proofing yourself anymore, because the technology is moving so fast. Lets face it, there is unlikely to be a vinyl type 100 year longevity on any of the existing technologies. If you get more than a few years use out of something, I think you'll be doing pretty well. Alternatively, you can sit on the side lines and wait for your tech products to be available in the supermarkets at bargain prices because something better is already being touted as the next big thing.

Basically: Lead, Follow or get out of the damn way.
