Unified DVD format effort reportedly finished

Groups headed by Toshiba and Sony offering competing technologies for next-generation DVDs have given up efforts to develop a unified format, the Yomiuri newspaper reported Tuesday.

I still think Blu-ray will win in the end, but this is not the best outcome. This is going to confuse the HD media market for at least a year I’d say.
