Engadget HD’s Complete Format War Timeline

Our friend Ben over at Engadget HD, has put together a sweet format war timeline. Ben covers everything from pre-2006 format posturing, to Blu-ray’s shaky start, up until the white flag waving by Toshiba.

This story is a must read for anyone that has not been following the format war since the beginning. We are surprised that the war has shaken out in less than 2 years, as it seems like only yesterday we were picking up the HD-A1 from Best Buy for $499 (3 days before official launch).
