Toshiba making it official tomorrow? Samsung shifts gears


We’ve covered this extensively already and know that Blu-ray has won the physical HD media war, but it’s being reported that Toshiba may make an official announcement as early as tomorrow. All Toshiba HD DVD hardware including stand alone players and optical drives will become non-existent on retailer shelves by March.

In the same realm of news, Samsung has announced they will shift their focus from a dual-format standpoint to just Blu-ray. Samsung was smart to play the dual-format card in this war. At least they didn’t waste too much money on HD DVD.
