Yes, the war is over. The format war that is. Toshiba is ending HD-DVD, which means Blu Ray wins the high def disc wars just in time to become obsolete in favor of high-def downloads. Clearly, the credit here goes to the Democrats.
I’m curious if anyone I know actually has one of these schtumaks. I’m disinclined to buy my DVD library again. I recently saw a demo of Kingdom of Heaven Blu Ray vs DVD. It was a little more instructive than the usual comparison, which involves a terrible DVD transfer. I was not that impressed. Blu-Ray was better, but not that much better.
