Blu-Ray St. Valentine’s Massacre | PS3Blog.net
UPDATE: Toshiba is reportedly abandoning HD-DVD. Source
EDIT: Toshiba hasn’t made an official announcement yet.
This week has been nothing short of a massacre:
- NetFlix announced a phase out of HD-DVD
- Best Buy, one of the largest retailers in the U.S, announced that it will strongly push Blu-Ray over HD-DVD
- Many smaller publishers, (including even pornography publishers such as Digital Playgrounds) have announced plans to support Blu-Ray and drop HD-DVD
- As if that wasn’t enough, Wal-Mart, the largest retailer of movies in the U.S, announced that it will also drop HD-DVD in June.
- Finally, Toshiba is officially admitting defeat and abandoning the format
