HD-DVD standard turned down by Warner B.

Blu-ray feeling confident

The drawn out HD format war may soon be coming to an end in favour of Blu-ray. HD-DVD has copped a real blow on the weekend due to Warner Bros. pulling the plug on the HD-DVD standard and becoming Blu-ray exclusive. Warner Bros make up for a significant amount of movie titles distributed to the masses and there's no denying this would have really hurt them.

In the latest saga in the long-running HD DVD vs. Blu-ray battle, Warner Bros. Entertainment has struck a blow to the former camp. The company announced today that it will soon become Blu-ray exclusive with regards to high-definition DVD titles.
