Warner’s defection to the Blu-ray camp looks to push the stalemate with HD-DVD over the edge. The Financial Times is reporting that Paramount is ready to drop HD-DVD and switch to Blu-ray. Apparently they had a clause in their contract that gives them an out in the event that Warner went with Blu-ray. Amazing how quickly the competitive balance can change. I’ve been holding out like most consumers, but have been leaning towards Blu-ray because of Disney’s support for the format.
