HD-DVD to split with Blu-ray?
As you might remember, Sony and Toshiba are trying to agree on a unified media format, somwhere between Toshiba’s HD-DVD format and Sony’s Blu-ray format, as reported earlier on Tech Digest. Well, it looks like we might be looking at a replay of the Betamax/VHS wars with the announcement by Toshiba that talks were not as advanced as had been previously reported. Reports by newspaper Nihon Keizai Shimbun claimed that while Toshiba had some ideas for future disc compromises, Sony hadn’t examined them and had stuck with its own ideas.
