Format war over?

Yay the cold...err Format war is over, with Blu-ray victorious. NHK, a Japanese news site has reported that Toshiba is planning to drop support for HD DVD. This comes as a final blow against HD DVD, which was already losing the battle after Warner bros. went Blu-ray exclusive. Toshiba is said to continue selling HD DVD products, but will discontinue development of the format and close its DVD factories in Aomori Prefecture, northern Japan.

I only have one thing to say... FLAWLESS VICTORY, SONY WINS! Man, I'd love to see the wild office party Sony is throwing right now.

Too be honest, I'm not really surprised Blu-Ray had a big advantage all along. Millions of people already had a Blu-ray player in the form of a ps3 from the start, whereas with the 360 you had to buy an add on or just a new HD DVD player altogether.
