Isn’t this a moot issue already? Universal said today that it, too, is going the Blu-ray-only route. In so many words:
While Universal values the close partnership we have shared with Toshiba, it is time to turn our focus to releasing new and catalog titles on Blu-ray
Moot because Toshiba had said earlier today that it was pulling out of the HD DVD business, handing the high-def disc “victory” to Blu-ray and Sony.
No details other than that now, like how this affects already-authored HD DVDs yet to be released, but expect Hollywood to go all out in the coming days to further distance itself from HD DVD.
It’s amazing how one studio’s decision carried so much weight, completely changing the landscape of that phony war.
