HD war over before it got going

Consumers were left wondering which format to choose, HD-DVD or Blu-Ray. No-one had the answer. Until now... as expected dual format players are soon to become available.

LG will be showing off their hybrid HD movie player at CES, which kicks of in Las Vagas on the 8th of January.

Of course, there will still be some confusion with plenty of players, which only support one format, already out in the wild.

Disks which have data stored in both formats are likely to emerge in time. Exactly when? Who knows.

Meanwhile, the Inquirer is predicting a slow death for HD-DVD due to the eventual success of Sony's PS3. The latest Playstation supports Blu-Ray only and comes with the drive, built-in, on all models. I'd tend, to agree with them.
