    Is it the end of the road for HD DVD?


    Yesterday, Toshiba announced price cuts for its HD DVD players. Analysts say this is a last-ditch effort to save the format. Only two studios, Paramount and Universal, support HD DVD. And it is rumored that Paramount will switch to the Blu-ray format.

    When Warner Bros. Entertainment moved all its high-definition eggs into the Blu-ray basket a week and a half ago, tremors could be felt throughout the digital entertainment world.

    HD DVD champion Toshiba canceled a press event in response, and all eyes fell on Paramount and Universal, the last major movie studios still committed to HD DVD.

    Now Toshiba has announced major price cuts on all three models of its next-generation DVD players, along with new promotional campaigns touting HD DVD. The question now on many minds is, do these latest efforts stand a chance, or is this the end of the game?<div class="story-advertisement">http://www.technewsworld.com/story/A...ong-61206.html<div class="story-advertisement">

    Blu-ray has regional coding, and HD DVD did not. Pity.
