China: HD-DVD's Alamo

show_image_templateWhile the format war is definitely settled here in the West, it appears that is not the case in China. The CBHD format is the dominant HD disc over there, and although it’s its own thing, it has more in common with HD-DVD than Blu-ray. Of course, the biggest market over there is probably still VCDs, but I think this little fact is pretty entertaining.

Honestly, if HD-DVD loses the US and Europe but gains China, that’s not such a bad turnout. HD-DVD fanatics (I know you’re out there) will continue to have a supply of weird off-brand electronics and fakey fake media to use in them.
