Just because Toshiba has given up on HD DVD and moved on
, doesn't mean the format war
is totally over for red. According to a report by a Japanese TV station, its successor, China Blue HD
is actually leading Blu-ray in marketshare in that country. Of course, based on the article found by our friends at FormatWarCentral
, all we have to go on is a machine translated description of a video in a language we don't speak describing the apparent initial success of the government backed format in a socialist republic. If you need more evidence than that to declare the format war officially restarted, you're probably a communist, but before we drag you in front of the Un-American activities committee check out the video for a peek at the slick new CBHD cases that The Onion
will surely be shipping its videos in very soon.
