Submission + - Warner Brothers dropping support for HD DVD (reuters.com)

BrerBear writes: The high definition format war may finally be over. Warner Bros., the only major studio which has still released on both the Blu-ray and HD DVD formats, is dropping its support for HD DVD within the first half of the year. Says Warner Bros Chairman and Chief Executive Barry Meyer, "The window of opportunity for high-definition DVD could be missed if format confusion continues to linger. We believe that exclusively distributing in Blu-ray will further the potential for mass market success and ultimately benefit retailers, producers, and most importantly, consumers." Sad that many Christmas HD DVD buyers may be getting the news only now.

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
