Is the end near?

Once Warner Brothers jumped ship, and Paramount started making similar noises, it was almost inevitable that the Next Gen DVD War might be drawing to an end. Too bad that it's gonna be Blu-Ray though - it proves to Sony that if they stamp their feet like an angry child they will eventually get their way.

Oh, well. I'll give it a while before I call this over, but the future looks dim for HD-DVD.

It is worth noting that Bill Gates, in a recent interview, had a good point when he stated that the future will see the end of discs as downloads and portable storage get cheaper, more reliable, and more prevalent.
