toshiba.jpgToshiba has responded in a press release to the news (see below) that Warner will stop releasing new titles on HD DVD in mid 2008.

In the press release Toshiba reaffirms their support of the HD DVD format and states that it is surprised by Warner’s decision.

Curiously they say that "HD DVD players and PCs have outsold Blu-ray in the US market in 2007", which perhaps needs some clarification since the sales of PCs would seem to dwarf the sales of HD DVD and Blu-ray altogether.

In any case it will be interesting to see what the HD DVD PRG and Toshiba do in the days ahead.
