Blu Ray Get's Another Victory

Warner Brothers has decide to drop HD DVD in favor of Blu Ray-disc. This is the buzz of the week in the electronics in world. Wasn't it funny how they waited to announce this right before the Consumer Electronics Show. Who says history doesn't repeat itself. Everyone knows that this is the VCR and Beta Max war all over again. We know who won that battle.

Warner Brothers controls about 20% of the movies in Hollywood. Now that Blu Ray has an exclusive committment from them, I do believe HD DVD days are numbered. With a 42 billion dollar a year business at stake, I don't think HD DVD supporters can not afford to hold on past this year. Making a movie in two formats becomes expensive, especially when one format is on it's way to becoming a dinosaur.
