    *(posted once but didnt work so here it is again!)

    Was watching the news in Japan this morning where they announced the official launch of the new HD DVD format.

    I assume this means both, players and software are available from today.

    Ill need to go have a look down at the local shops!!

    Interestingly enough, the report went on to say that "Warner Bro's" as well as "Paramount" would be releasing titles on Blu Ray which means they are no longer exclussive to HD DVD.

    Let the war begin!!

    Not necessarily - often products are paper launched and then actual product doesn't hit the shelves until a couple of months later. Graphics cards are the prime example of this.
