Death of HDDVD

With Warner Bros officially jumping ship from HD-DVD to Blu-Ray, it seems that the format war is close to an end - with HD-DVD looking likely to go the way of Betamax.

Universal and Paramount are the only big studios still supporting the format and speculation has it that Paramount has a specific clause in their contract to allow them to also leave if Warner Bros do. So there.

With movies downloading sure to become as big as music, it may be a fairly short lived victory.
