Warner now backing Sony’s Blu-Ray HD format exclusively from May 2008 onward

In what has to be a hellish announcement for HD-DVD owners and relief for everyobody else, Warner has finally announced that they will be solely supporting the Blu-Ray format from May this year.

To be brutally honest, I am sick and tired of having to choose between two formats, of which there is little superficial difference, with shows and movies that I enjoy being released on one and not the other. Esepcially now that Warner has jumped on board, this means that the previously annnouced Appleseed: Ex Machina will now be heading to the Blu-Ray format, along with the Matrix sequels too.

This is now officially awesome, as I dont now have to justify a £100 purchase, for just four or five films that I thought would never make it to Blu-Ray in the first place.

With Warner now backing Blu-Ray, I can only hope that brings us closer to having a single HD format in the market and that other HD-DVD ‘die hards’ switch to Blu-Ray too, as the current format ‘war’ isn’t benefitting anyone.
