Is Toshiba Giving Up On HD-DVD?

“…….at least according to some sources: Toshiba is supposedly conceding defeat and withdrawing from the next gen DVD market. It should be noted that Toshiba has not made any official comment. A number of Kotakuites have sent us the Japanese source NHK and Reuters articles that are brief and to the point, citing an (anonymous) internal Toshiba source: Toshiba’s been losing the war and is giving up, with official details to follow later.” – Kotaku.com

The company said it will continue to sell HD-DVD products for a while but will stop further development of HD DVD. Meanwhile, it said its DVD factories in Aomori Prefecture, northern Japan, would be closed.Market observers said that Toshiba could suffer a loss of hundreds of millions of US dollars.

Well, there it is, it looks like you won’t be seeing HD-DVD any more and I think before July. I  knew from the start that HD-DVD would never catch on. I mean come on its just a DVD with an HD sticker slapped on. That’s like driving a Ford Torus with an HD sticker slapped on….It’s still a Ford and it still sucks.

What do you think of this shocking, but unofficial news?
