Toshiba has issued a brief press release in response to Warner Home Video's decision to exclusively support the Blu-ray format beginning in May. Expect more reactions and news over the next several days with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2008) coming up next week.

Press Release from Toshiba:

(January 4, 2008 - Tokyo, Japan)

Toshiba is quite surprised by Warner Bros.' decision to abandon HD DVD in favor of Blu-ray, despite the fact that there are various contracts in place between our companies concerning the support of HD DVD. As central members of the DVD Forum, we have long maintained a close partnership with Warner Bros. We worked closely together to help standardize the first-generation DVD format as well as to define and shape HD DVD as its next-generation successor.

We were particularly disappointed that this decision was made in spite of the significant momentum HD DVD has gained in the US market as well as other regions in 2007. HD DVD players and PCs have outsold Blu-ray in the US market in 2007.

We will assess the potential impact of this announcement with the other HD DVD partner companies and evaluate potential next steps. We remain firm in our belief that HD DVD is the format best suited to the wants and needs of the consumer.

I believe there is a HD DVD format that is on the order of 50 gigs

It's 51 GB and was suprisingly approved by Disney last October... :)
