Poorly written article with erroneous facts. Also the source. lol.

And they have also said nothing new that we don't already know. Just terrible biased speculation.

Add "High Def Digest.com" (no spaces) to the link.

This was a quote from the CES2008. Why are they quoting that?

Sign me up. I need it examined right now because my HD DVD player is a door stop in my room. Good thing I have the best bluray player, the PS3, around with 3 games.

Maybe I'm over-reacting but I think if Toshiba drops HD DVD then it's really game over for HD DVD.

Honestly,

The whole concept doesn't make sense to me. You can be selling the stuff one day and then come out and say "oops,.. we give up" the next.

I just don't think that's reason-able at all.

Just letting it fade,.. I can see that. But not the sort of thing suggested in the article.

Maybe this is the big news for tomorrow,.. it can't be but if it is it's sort of bigger then I thought.

I agree. There would be so many angry people that just bought players... man oh man.

I think they would wait till late Spring once Warner full pulls out. There must be alot of disc and players still in inventory that they need to sell

Any source starting out with "Hollywood", should not be taken seriously.
