Has Sony finally won the much known DVD war? Today, Toshiba announced that it is dropping the high-definition DVD battle and hence will stop production of its HD DVD players and recorders. And this may signal a victory for Sony's Blu-ray format. Recently Warner Bros', WalMart, UK retailer Woolworths US chain Best Buy, and US online retailer Netflix have backed Sony's Blu-ray format and hence could have forced Toshiba into it's decision.
Blu-ray’s was backed by Sony and Philips while HD DVD was baked by Toshiba and Hitachi. This may be good news for consumers in that they have only one format to choose from, but it will also make consumers that bought the HD DVD players anger, since they will have less choice of films to watch on their player. What do you think?
