It is starting to feel like HD-DVD has lost. With Transformers only available on HD-DVD, I thought there was a glimmer of hope, but I am pretty sure the fat lady is singing.
I think Disney was the camel that broke the straw back. It is really frustrating that I can’t buy my kid’s movies on HD-DVD since I only have an Xbox 360, and have to “waste” money in an older format. Buying a Blue Ray player is still not feasible, while HD-DVD players head towards $100.
I could care less about which technology. They only thing that erks me a bit is that it is Sony’s proprietary technology.
One walk around CES and it is pretty clear, which one is hyped and winning. HD-DVD may be relegated to “Beta Max”, special use status.
