Oh man, big news, guys! I don't know if you've heard, but it looks like Blu-ray has won the format war and HD DVD is dead! You heard it here first, spread the news! In fact, Samsung has just announced that it's scaling back its HD DVD operations and focusing more on Blu-ray. "Samsung is expected to show more interest in Blu-ray products than rival HD DVDs," says the Director of Obvious Decisions at Samsung headquarters. Toshiba, seriously, make this official so we can move on. Please. [Korea Times via Pocket Lint]
@aceface: I agree eventually physical format will die, but not any time soon. You can stream an HD movie no problem, OnDemand does it now, but if you want a hard copy of an HD movie how big is that? 50-60 gigs? fine. I have a couple hundred DVDs, who has that much storage sitting around their house now. Physical formats wont die before they put out cheap multi terabyte drives. And with a $3000 60 gig AirMac I don't see that happening anytime soon. Just go buy a PS3. It's great.
