The NY Times is reporting that Paramount and Dreamworks were paid

Contrary to what the BDA would have you believe, the format war is far from over, but the news yesterday without a doubt extended it -- but for how long? Well, according to the NY Times, the deal between the HD DVD camp and Paramount/Dreamworks for $150 Million in incentives is for 18 months. A lot can happen in 18 months, but one thing that won't is an end to either HD DVD or Blu-ray. We can't say we blame them for going exclusive, after all we doubt there is any way they could have made $150 Million by selling Blu-ray discs between now and February 2009. We don't know about anyone else but those dual format players are looking better and better everyday.
