Blu-Ray Wins — It’s Official

Filed under: Sight by Nathan @ 7:42 pm

Yahoo reports that Toshiba has thrown in the proverbial towel, making the unofficial Blu-Ray format war win official.

You know, I kinda thought HD-DVD would win, if only because of Sony’s track record: Betamax, Minidisc, Memory Stick, and UMD. I’m still not going to buy a high definition player. First, I have 500 DVDs that I’d prefer NOT become useless, and second, I imagine that standard def will be around until digital distribution makes the whole thing moot.
