In a press release, the HD DVD Group is rallying the demoralized troops around the accomplishments made in 2007. Citing almost one million players in North America and a good (by HDM standards) library of titles, 2007 was a good year for the red camp. There's the requisite cherry picking of factoids, but the release does play to HD DVD's strengths of affordability and interactive features. We're glad to see HD DVD put on a brave face; and as we've said, HD DVD has been declared "dead" before. Maybe this is sign that team red has shaken off the cobwebs from this week's blows. The real test will be if HD DVD will be able to generate some more forward-looking optimism.
