The battle will be 'decided' if Paramount drops the HD-DVD format and goes Blu-Ray. Unconfirmed reports say Paramount's sweetheart deal with Toshiba had an out clause if WB switched to Blu, which they did just recently. Paramount denies they're dropping HD-DVD... yet, but of course they're not going to pull the plug on their Toshiba deal until... they do. If it ends up with Universal being the only studio to back their own format, that will end the HiDef battle, at least in terms of consumer home video entertainment players and studio-produced media. Still, for now there is no winner, just another shift in studio support majority.
