There was an official announcement today that put thebourne_identity_hddvd_box.jpg final nail in HD’s coffin. Although HD was the more affordable option, a reported $229-329 versus the $1000 Blue Ray (or the $600 PS3) it finally admitted defeat.

Toshiba even had a limited offer to have players available for $100 at Walmart.

Friday Walmart changed the deal and switched entirely to Blue Ray. In addition, Best Buy and Netflicks recently announced their switch to Blue Ray after months of stocking both.

Toshiba stands to lose millions when they leave the DVD market.

Another blogger has speculated about the possible outcomes for Toshiba. -And no word yet why Toshiba’s presence in the market can’t save them.

-At least I got to see the Bourne Supremacy in HD.
