Blu-ray victory: not inevitable

Crave looks back to Blu-ray's ridiculous "Blu-ray Today" publication in light of the news that Paramount and DreamWorks are now HD DVD exclusive studios.


With the latest news of Paramount and DreamWorks becoming HD DVD exclusive studios, we couldn't help but remember the ridiculous "Blu-ray Today" publication from CES 2007. Blu-ray tried to fire back by announcing Fox and MGM releases this year, but that doesn't stop the fact that Blu-ray's edge in studio support was somewhat eroded by yesterday's news. Blu-ray victory is far from inevitable, and whether or not this format war ends up being good for consumers has yet to be seen. All a high-def movie fan can do is hope that combo players start coming down in price soon.
