Gear: The End is Near

HD-DVD is a rapidly sinking ship. I reported earlier today that Best Buy and Wal-Mart were both lining up behind Blu-ray. Now, in what is likely the final bell in the format war, rumors are swirling that Toshiba is preparing to formally drop HD-DVD. Without a large hardware manufacturer supporting the format, the remaining HD-DVD exclusive studios, Universal and Paramount, are sure to jump to Blu-ray soon.

HD-DVD is dead. Long live Blu-ray!

(And from a consumer perspective, thank god!)
