Default HD-DVD is dead

Toshiba abandons HD-DVD

Does this mean a possibility of cheap 405nm diodes for us?

That means they admit BluRay is better. It may also mean HD-DVD drives are being chucked out cheap soon.

It was more features no one used, and with bluray firmware 2.0 coming out it will allow updates I believe and internet usage. Just get a PS3, then no need to worry about updates. People are more concerned about capacity for content not useless picture in a picture features. If it was better, it would of won. 8-)

I think the colours are the same, but the manufacturers are different. So they aren't quite the exact same.

Sucks that hd-dvd burners are super rare so it will be hard to find a cheap burner.
