It's really no surprise that Blu-ray won the high definition video battle. Aside from the fact that major companies like Disney have backed it, the biggest advantage was that PlayStation 3 has a Blu-ray player, so already the gamers of the world picked a side. Last week Best Buy said they would recommend Blu-ray to customers, and Wal-Mart said they would only sell Blu-ray. And Toshiba sealed the deal yesterday when the company announced it would no longer make HD DVD players.
I am just so glad the war is over. I have put off buying any high-def movie players, and for that matter I haven't bought many regular DVDs either. I figured Blu-ray would be a winner, but just having two brands was a big discouragement for me to be an early adapter.
Toshiba said more than a million people bought a HD DVD player from them. Are you one of them? Or did you buy into Blu-ray with confidence?
