Blu-Ray wins format war, HD DVD is toast

If you've been waiting to buy a hi-def DVD player because of the 2 battling formats (I know I have), then wait no more. The official winner is Sony's Blu-Ray platform.

Yesterday Toshiba officially ended the format war with the announcement that it is discontinuing their HD DVD line.

I had an inkling this was coming since some major retailers, including Walmart, have stated recently they will only sell Blu-Ray, but the Toshiba announcement makes it official.

This should create a price drop in Blu-Ray players as well since they are now the defacto standard.
