Paramount has officially issued its denial of the rumor -- originally printed in the Financial Times
-- that it is very close to ending its exclusive support of HD DVD. The quick end to what had been reported as an 18-month agreement could be the result of a "get out" clause triggered by Warner Bros.' sudden departure from HD DVD releases. Whether this will follow last year's "Universal may switch
" rumor, that didn't happen
, or last month's "Warner may switch
" rumor, that did, remains to be seen. Until we hear otherwise, Paramount, Transformers
are still HD DVD only, whether they like it or not.
