High Definition Movie Formats – Is the War Over?

January 19, 2008


Sony might have well lost the BetaMax war. But it looks like Sony is all set to win the current high definition format war. Engadget has the latest Nielson VideoScan numbers, and things sure don’t look bright for HD-DVD. The fight is reported to have been tight until Warner recently announced that it is moving over to the Blu Ray gang.

One good thing of this is that HD-DVD sets have seen some drastic price reductions. Hopefully, the increase in Blu Ray sales numbers will also lead some price cuts for those drives. But personally, I ain’t getting into either format until the prices have come way down.
