Toshiba Shacks Up With BDX2000 Blu-ray Following HD DVD's DeathS

We all knew this day would come. Following the death of his beloved HD DVD, Toshiba couldn't stand the cold bed, the lonely nights and the tables for one. Suppressing tears, he released the BDX2000 Blu-ray player.

A bit ashamed, he tenuously explained the situation to friends and family, detailing the player's typical 1080p/24fps output while urging his former inlaws that AVCHD support and SD card reading had made the whole decision a lot easier. They didn't understand, but they accepted his decision. They'd loved him once, like a son.

Of course, Toshiba's most judgmental friends noticed that the BDX2000 was a skinnier model than the the HD-XA1 (bless her heart). Plus, she was prone to flaunting around town with a smoked glass finish like she owns the place.

Besides, for $250 this November, most of us would have picked the PS3. [prnewswire and Image]
