It’s over, and Blu-ray wins. The main backer of the HD DVD format for next-gen video discs, Toshiba, has itself withdrawn from production of said discs. Without Toshiba to lead the way, HD DVD is more or less a done format.
We feel bad for supporters of the format, but they welcoming arms of Blu-ray will be open, waiting to embrace you and make you feel sorry of ever doubting it.
And to everyone who I’ve had Blu-ray vs. HD DVD arguments with in the last three years: Yes, you told me so, now STFU.
