The battle for industry standard between Toshiba's HD DVD and Sony's Blu-ray format ended today after Toshiba's official announcement of stop making its high definition DVD's (having seen major players choosing rival Blu-ray format)
What is the situation of the people who bought HD DVD devices? Apparently there are over 1m users over worldwide.
Now that the battle is over, at least the new customers don't need to worry about which format to go with. With no more competition, can we expect the prices to go down? This move may bring the prices of Blu-ray players and devices down due to additional profit from patent and mass volume sale.
