357w ago - Toshiba Corp is planning to give up on its HD DVD format for high-definition video, conceding defeat to the competing Blu-Ray technology backed by Sony Corp, a company source said on Saturday.

Japanese public broadcaster NHK had earlier reported that Toshiba would suffer losses in the tens of billions of yen (hundreds of millions of dollars) as it scrapped production of HD DVD players and recorders and took other steps to exit the business.

The company source told Reuters that Toshiba was in the final stages of planning to exit the HD DVD business and that an official decision would be made soon.

358w ago - Online rental giant Netflix has confirmed that it will exclusively stock high definition films in the Blu-ray disc format by year's end, following Warner's decision to back the format over HD DVD technology.

It's worth pointing out that other online film rental services, such as Blockbuster Online, still plan to support both formats – but with the odds stacking up in favor of Blu-ray, who knows for how long. :P

50°
358w ago - If you thought 2007 was a kick-ass year for playing video games, you were right. And guess what? Things aren't going to slow down in 2008. The year 2007 saw numerous delays of major titles, and all those bad boys are coming out in 2008. We're counting down our 10 most wanted games of the year.

For a game to have been considered in our top 10, it must be a console/handheld game, officially announced and set with a release date for 2008 in North America. Without further ado, grab a bag of popcorn and join us as we count down to our most wanted game of 2008.

10) Ninja Gaiden II

Team Ninja's anticipated sequel to Ninja Gaiden (Xbox) is set to hit Xbox 360 in 2008, and as expected, it looks to be every bit as gorgeous as an Itagaki game should be. The bloody action game comes with new weapons, areas, enemies, bosses and an all-new storyline following Ryu's mission to save the race of humanity from extinction. Additionally, Ninja Gaiden II is expected to be the bloodiest and goriest in the series, so far, and like its predecessor, it's only on Microsoft's system.

9) LittleBigPlanet

Since its unveiling at GDC last year, we've been intrigued and excited about Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet. The social platformer lets you create your own levels and share them with other...

GameFly: Burnout Paradise Leads The Races

50°
359w ago - This week's top rental charts from U.S. game rental company GameFly, representing the most requested games for the week ending January 21st, highlight both to-be-released and already released games in a unique demand-specific chart.

Burnout Paradise hangs on to the top spot for the second week in a row. Capcom's Devil May Cry 4, slated to release February 5th, made the top five twice last week --the Xbox 360 SKU in second position, and the PS3 SKU in fourth -- but this week, the Xbox 360 SKU steps back a spot to third, while the PS3 SKU fails to chart in the top 5.

Last week's third placer Turok advances into the second position, and No More Heroes also moves up one spot into fourth, significant as the top five all-platform rental requests often tend to be a mirror of the Xbox 360's top five. Sega's The Club enters the top five this week in fifth.

What follows is a breakdown of the top titles requested by GameFly subscribers across each of the major platforms:

Xbox 360

1. Burnout Paradise (Electronic Arts)
2. Turok (Touchstone)
3. Devil May Cry 4 (Capcom)
4. The Club (Sega)
5. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (Ubisoft)

Nintendo Wii

1. No More Heroes (Ubisoft)
2. Endless Ocean (Nintendo)
3. Super Smash Bros....
