It's official: WB to support both high-def DVD formats

Kevin C. Tofel

We expected this announcement based on rumors earlier this week, and it seems pretty official now. Warner Brothers indicated that it will likely release high-def DVDs in both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray formats. At this point, all of the fences and barriers between the two camps appear to be falling, simply because the major studios aren't picking a clear winner.

Smaller players have two options here: play both sides like the big boys or place a bet one format and cross your fingers. If the hardware manufacturers can't play nice here, at least the studios are making the situation a little rosier for the consumer. Can you imagine wanting to buy a DVD movie and the first question you have to ask is, "which studio put that out?"
