The suits over at Toshiba have confimed that we’ll be able to get our hands on the new HD DVD players November 15th this year. The players are already available in the US and Japan, so why we should be left behind I don’t know.
Two days after Toshiba release the new HD-DVD, Sony will be launching Blu-ray players, a similar but incompatible technology. This just brings back memories of the VHS and Beta video tape war, at least this time the media looks the same so if you choose the wrong one you won’t have to change your DVD storage solution.
Full info over at the good old BBC.
