Microsoft | Microsoft finally pulls plug on HD DVD | Seattle Times Newspaper

Game over for HD DVD

Microsoft said it will stop making HD DVD players for its Xbox 360 video-game system after Toshiba ceded the high-definition video format battle to Sony's Blu-ray.

Microsoft said Saturday it would continue to provide standard warranty support for its HD DVD players.

A spokeswoman told Bloomberg News the company also will cut the price of players remaining in stock by more than half, to $49.
