We all remember the great format war that was HD DVD versus Blu-ray, and we all know how it turned out. However, it seems Toshiba could finally be about to concede defeat and release a Blu-ray player later this year.
Citing Japanese newspaper Yomiuri Shimbun, PC World reports that, exactly a year and five months after Toshiba ended the HD format work, the Toshiba has confirmed plans to adopt the Blu-ray format.
With the integration of Blu-ray players in laptops, game consoles and HDTVs it's not exactly shocking to hear Toshiba plans to release a player of its own, especially when you consider the company's position as a top consumer electronics manufacturer. That said, it'll be interesting to see how the company handles the launch and what kind of player (or players) it comes out with.
What are your experiences with Toshiba electronics? Would you be tempted to buy a Blu-ray player manufactured by the company? Let us know in the comments below!
