HD DVD: Game Over

One thought on “HD DVD: Game Over

  1. Having purchased the HD-DVD add-on drive for my Xbox 360, I guess I was an early-adopter. I’ve always been on the sidelines of this “war” because, well, since I own an Xbox360 and will eventually own a PlayStation 3, I’m “covered”!
    It’s really surprising how quickly this kerfuffle resolved itself. I’m bummed for my friends in the Intersphere who have bought HD-DVD content, but at least people can stop perseverating about it and start buying up their favorite content!
