Consumers have been waiting for months to see who would win the format war, and with the recent announcement of Warner defecting to Blu-ray, the future appear more defined. However, not two days after the Warner move, Paramount, a long-standing supporter of HD-DVD is set to announce they are also defecting. If Paramount, owned by Viacom, actually moves to Blu-ray as well, the format war will be technically over. With six of the seven major motion picture company’s moving to Blu-ray, if you’ve been saving your pennies waiting for the outcome, now is the time to buy that brand spanking new player.
For the record, Sony must be elated with this news. Surely, this makes up for the Playstation 3 debacle! Kinda.
