The end of HD DVD

I’m ready to say that the format war is over and HD-DVD lost. Engadget is reporting that Wal-Mart will no longer carry HD-DVD and by June will carry Blu-Ray and regular DVD only.

If director Michael Bay is to believed, prepare for the format war to move to another front as Microsoft will push downloadable HD content as the (non) format to use.

Update: Now Reuter’s is reporting that Toshiba is finalizing their plans to pull out of HD-DVD.  Via my dad who sent me this Engadget link.
