If the Reuters/NHK report is accurate, now is probably a good time to put your HD-DVD player up on Craigslist (and hope they convert Heroes to Blu-ray soon!).
Good news: the format war is over. Bad news: it took about five years too long. Thanks, guys!
Update 12/19: It’s official: HD-DVD is dead. Toshiba just announced they were pulling out of the HD-DVD business.
