Funny, HD-DVD is a Much Better Name

Seems like all those Playstation 3 sales might have paid off after all. I think I might skip this generation of tech and just embrace digital downloads, myself, but we’ll see. This could be an excuse to buy a PS3 when the price comes down a lot.

The party for HD DVD is over, literally

The HD DVD Promotional Group had scheduled a cocktail party and a press conference this Sunday evening in Las Vegas to tout the “progress” it has made in high definition video and the ongoing format war with the Blu-ray consortium.

On Friday, however, the group sent out a note terminating the event because Warner Home Video earlier in the day said it would switch exclusively to the Blu-ray format.

Ironically, HD DVD players have outsold standalone Blu-ray players. At Ceatec last October, Blu-ray execs said that their group would become more aggressive in late 2007 in promoting the format and try to gain an advantage by the first quarter of 2008.
