Paramount Pictures

Toshiba and the rest of La Familia HD DVD must thought they had this one on lockdown, but Paramount Pictures announced yesterday that they're going to hedge their bets and release movies in both Blu-ray and HD DVD (up until yesterday they were committed solely to HD DVD). So far they're the first — and only — biggie to say publicly that they're going to release movies in both formats, but now that it's a virtual certainty that both HD DVD and Blu-ray are going to make it to market we wouldn't be at all surprised to see at least couple more studios announcing that they're gonna swing both ways.
