På min PS3 har jeg måttet skru av mediaserveren, for den kræsjer bredbåndsrouteren min hver eneste gang. Heldigvis virker det som om laseren holder stand (enn så lenge).

Det er også rimelig klart at Toshiba kommer til å fortsette å lage noen ( 1? ) HD DVD spiller.
Samsung og LG fortsetter også å lage kombispillere så lenge det finnes ett marked, men det at samsung fjerner HQV brikka fra 5500 sånn at den ikke blir en like god DVD spilller gjør den jo litt mindre intrrssant.
Prisen ser også ut til å holde seg høy.

Best Buy To Push Blu-ray Over HD DVD In Stores - 2/11/2008 1:16:00 PM - TWICE
Minneapolis — Best Buy stopped short of announcing exclusive support for Blu-ray Disc, but starting in March the chain will begin “prominently showcasing” Blu-ray Disc hardware and software in its retail stores and online.
The giant CE retail chain said the decision was made to give consumers direction and clear up confusion that remains in the ongoing HD disc format war. The company noted that it will continue to carry an assortment of HD DVD products for customers who want them.
“Consumers have told us that they want us to help lead the way,” stated Brian Dunn, Best Buy president/COO. “We’ve listened to our customers, and we are responding. Best Buy will recommend Blu-ray as the preferred format. Our decision to shine a spotlight on Blu-ray Disc players and other Blu-ray products is a strong signal to our customers that we believe Blu-ray is the right format choice for them.”
Dunn added that “Best Buy has always believed that the customer will benefit from a widely accepted single format that would offer advantages such as product compatibility and expanded content choices. Because we believe that Blu-ray is fast emerging as that single format, we have decided to focus on Blu-ray products.”
“With the explosion of HDTVs, customers are hungry for quality, high-definition content. We believe our move to feature Blu-ray should help consumers feel confident in their hi-def content choices,” said Mike Vitelli, Best Buy’s home solutions senior VP. “Best Buy is excited by the next generation of digital products and we know our customers are too. We are excited about helping customers find the right mix of products and services to make the next generation of high-definition entertainment technology come alive for them. We believe that Blu-ray is the right solution for consumers.”
Earlier in the day, online DVD rental company Netflix said it will begin offering Blu-ray Discs exclusively to its customers and expects to transition out of HD DVD by the end of the year.
Toshiba executives did not respond to requests for comment as this was posted."

Netflix har skjønt det.... Kommer "gutta" her inn snart etter?
Og snøballen fortsetter å rulle!
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Online video rental company Netflix Inc (NFLX.O: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Monday it would exclusively stock Blu-ray high-definition DVDs after a decision by some the world's biggest movie studios in favor of the Sony Corp (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research) developed format.
Netflix has stocked DVDs using both Blu-ray and the competing HD DVD format developed by Toshiba Corp (6502.T: Quote, Profile, Research) since they first came on the market in early 2006.
Four out of six major Hollywood studios have recently decided to publish high-definition DVDs only using Blu-ray.
Netflix said that with such a clear signal from the industry, it will only buy Blu-ray discs going forward and will phase out stock of HD DVD by about the end of the year.

Litt morsomt på IT-avisen som omtaler Best-Buy nyheten:
..Dermed velger to nye amerikanske aktører Sonys løsning, mens Toshiba taper støttespillere raskt. HD-krigen er tydeligvis nådeløs. Vi derimot, så nettopp Blade Runner på HD DVD som vår lille protest.

I mellomtiden har forhåpentligvis prisen på spillere falt en del.

HD DVD camp issues sad little response to Netflix, Best Buy snubs
Out of the many jobs in today's multi-billion dollar consumer electronics industry, the one we'd probably want least right now is writer of press releases for the HD DVD Promotional Group. After each major defection, these poor folks have to whip up a positive-sounding response to what everyone knows is very bad news -- but after yesterday's one-two punches by Netflix and Best Buy, even these paid cheerleaders are having trouble finding the right spin. Here's what they had to say, as reported by CNET:
"We have long held the belief that HD DVD is the best format for consumers based on quality and value, and with more than 1 million HD DVD players on the market, it's unfortunate to see Netflix make the decision to only stock Blu-ray titles going forward. While the Best Buy announcement says they will recommend Blu-ray, at least they will continue to carry HD DVD and offer consumers a choice at retail."
Doesn't sound like there's too much fight left there, does it? If the best you can do to support your dying format is to rehash the same canned argument and celebrate your remaining shelf space, well, there would seem to be a bigger problem than you're willing to admit. At this point, we're just curious to see how it will all end: after investing so much time, energy, money, and vitriol on this bitter format war, how does Toshiba move forward in a world almost completely dominated by its rival in blue?

He he, ser frem til den siste press releasen fra Toshiba og HD DVD gruppen...
02-12-2008, 23:38 #12676
Jeg får faktisk litt vondt når jeg leser slike pressemeldinger. Tenker på alle de penga som går tapt, sikkert masse arbeidsplasser osv osv. Det var ingen liten satsning Toshiba hadde det, lurer på hvor mye knekk de får i aksjekursen som følge av dette. Jeg kan le litt av HD DVD'ere som tviholder på formatet sitt, men innert inne syntes jeg litt synd på den røde ligaen av rent økonomiske grunner. Men spiller man med høy risiko er potensialet for tap desto høyere..

, men ser ut til å vinne for det. Og det takket være en spillkonsoll. Ganske sykt, egentlig!
