Blu-ray vs. HD DVD - Image 1The HD DVD camp has announced that it is canceling its press conference at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show. The group mentioned that this was done so that they could have time to discuss the impact of Warner Bros. Entertainment's recent announcement that all their films will be Blu-Ray exclusive after May.

Toshiba, a staunch supporter of the HD-DVD format, commented about Warner Bros.' decision in a press release. The company said that it was very surprised considering "there are various contracts in place between our companies concerning the support of HD DVD."

Obviously, the Blu-Ray group is very happy at this announcement. They have declared their CES presence as the "Best Booth of All Time." It looks like the format wars are raging hotter than ever before. Be sure to check back here for more updates on this hot issue.
