Just wow, I didn't expect Paramount/Dreamworks to jump aboard Blu-ray quite yet. But they did, I think it is the end but there is still a possibility that HD-DVD still has life.

 That page has been updated:

UPDATE: We have received word from Paramount/DreamWorks that although they continue to support HD DVD, they will not be making any new high-def title announcements at CES 2008.

Yep. HD-DVD's only real hope in my opinion is switching to a computer format or some other format not in the home movie buisness.

There is this part in the OP:

Sir Howard Stringer, chief executive of Sony, on Monday held out an olive branch, saying the company would be “open to dialogue” with the HD DVD camp to “grow the market”. The move came as new figures showed that Blu-ray had opened up a decisive lead over the rival home entertainment format.

Sir Howard said: “We are not going to push people around. We’ll talk to anyone ... we have a lot of work to do to grow the market. We’ll be systematic and open to dialogue at all times.”

I say they should just hammer out a truce. HD-DVD has had some revenue, even if less than blu-ray, anda truce would allow both sides to use that to push hi-def in general to the mainstream. 



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

A Truce when Bluray controls 70% of the market? Not happening.

 A truce simply means a cease fire.  If they can get Universal and Paramount on board, and Toshiba to stop manufacturing players, then the fight will be over.
