HD-DVD-I'm falling and I can't get up!

It seems that the last two studio's(NBC Universal and Paramount) that support HD-DVD have decide to end there exclusive agreement with Toshiba. The move by Warner Brothers earlier this week has started a slide that Toshiba may not be able to recover from.

On the music front, Amazon has announced that they will be the first to sell DRM free songs from all four major music companies in the MP3 format. This is thanks to Sony BMG trying to boost there records which saw a 15% drop in 2007. Sony BMG is the second largest music company in the world, and they have money makers like Beyonce and Celine Dion on the label. Music lovers are becoming tired of all the security and the inability to transfer music between devices. All though Amazon will be the first to sell Sony's music, Sony is also the last of the four major music labels to make this decision.

In another move from Sony it announced that it is discontinuing the 20 and 60GB PS3 in Japan. There Focus has shifted from backwards-compatibility to the more cost effective 40GB PS3. So if you have been on the fence about buying the PS3, and still want to be able to play your PS2 games I would grab one now!
