Nearly all important magazines and websites are reporting about the talks between Sony and Toshiba. Both of the sides, Blu-ray and HD-DVD, are not interested in a format war like in the past and of course, no one wants the other format to become dominant.
The logical (or not) solution is a hybrid format which contains technology from both. But, when we consider that HD-DVD intends to start by the end of the year and when we compare both of the formats, then weâ€™ll see that it is not easy to combine the formats and that such a â€œdevelopmentâ€ should happen very quick.
Of course, most of us would prefer one standard, but will this really happen? Will we see a unified next generation DVD format?
