Toshiba Embrace Blu-ray

Toshiba, one of HD-DVD’s strongest supporters, has finally given in and confirmed that they’ll be making Blu-ray players soon. Despite Blu-ray ‘winning’ the HD war back in early 2008, Toshiba has only just begun production of the players, which will include stand-alone equipment and internal PC drives, with the first products expected to be out before the end of the year.  “In light of recent growth in digital devices supporting the Blu-ray format, combined with market demand from consumers and retailers alike, Toshiba has decided to join the BDA,” said a press statement.

Toshiba will also be joining the BDA (Blu-ray Disc Association).
