    Toshiba has released a statement which indicates that it is surprised by WB's decision to abandon the HD DVD format and go exclusively Blu-ray.

    There seems to be 'sour grapes' involved as Toshiba draw on the fact there are various contracts in place regarding the support of HD DVD And the two companies worked closely to standardize the DVD format and shape HD DVD as its successor.

    TOSHIBA'S STATEMENT:

    Toshiba is quite surprised by Warner Bros.' decision to abandon HD DVD in favor of Blu-ray, despite the fact that there are various contracts in place between our companies concerning the support of HD DVD. As central members of the DVD Forum, we have long maintained a close partnership with Warner Bros. We worked closely together to help standardize the first-generation DVD format as well as to define and shape HD DVD as its next-generation successor.

    We were particularly disappointed that this decision was Made in spite of the significant momentum HD DVD has gained in the US market as well as other regions in 2007. HD DVD players and PCs have outsold Blu-ray in the US market in 2007.

    We will assess the potential impact of this announcement with the other HD DVD partner companies and evaluate potential next steps. We remain firm in our belief that HD DVD is the format best suited to the wants and needs of the consumer.
