Just about 30 minute ago Warner Bros announced that they wil be backing the Bluray format and not HD-DVD. This gave Sony a big boost, their stock is up on the news and it is a great blow to HD-DVD. The reporter on CNBC said other movie studio may follow Warner Bros lead. This is also a big blow to Microsoft who backs HD-DVD.
Warner Bros. has become the latest studio to back Blu-ray exclusively. The announcement scheduled for Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas instead leaked out today with the studio now confirming the news.
There had been speculation for some time that Warner would go this way, but all along, Warner has been sending signals that it would not pick a side in the contentious battle for next-generation DVDs.
