In a surprise move Warner Brothers have announced that they are no long supporting both formats and will be releasing titles from their extensive catalogue on the Blu-Ray format. Last year there were rumours that Warner would become HD-DVD exclusive following in the footsteps of Paramount. Surely this will mean the end of HD-DVD and the HD format war. I have made it well known on this blog that HD-DVD is my format of choice, now owning over fifty discs. Warner have stated that the decision was purely down to the “strong consumer preference” for the Blu-Ray format. Why would people want region coding and extensive DRM when another format offers neither? I must really be out of touch with society. Thanks to Marc for bring this to my attention.
