SHERMAN, Tex. -- When consumers go to buy a new DVD player, there will not be quite as many options to choose from. Toshiba announced earlier this week they will no longer be producing high definition DVD players, which means, when it comes to upgraded systems, Blu-Ray players will be the only kind on the shelf.
"We’re not completely shunning one technology, but to make a simplified decision for the consumer, we're only backing officially Blu-Ray." Best Buy’s Ryan Fine says.
If you have an HD-DVD player, you don't have to get rid of it yet, because HD-DVD’s are still on the market for now. You can still use it to play regular DVD’s as well.
