It appears that Toshiba, the company that developed the HD-DVD, is going to stop manufacturing software and hardware for HD-DVD at a loss of hundreds of millions of dollars. So you could officially expect no more new HD-DVDs to be produced, any new players nor any more movies to be released on the format. Who didn't see this coming, though? Toshiba is smart for ceasing production now so they don't lose even more money. All current HD-DVD players will probably go on sale in the $50-$80 price range so anybody looking to see the 386 movies released on HD-DVD in full 1080p and getting a cheap DVD upconverter are going to be able to get the player at a steal. HD-DVD was great while it lasted and had some great sales numbers with over a million HD-DVD players sold and 386 movies released. While, that's the end of HD-DVD. The format war is officially over.
