Default 4th Gen players: Will they be released??

After the Warner annoncement and the amount of momentum camp blu is gaining as a result...will Toshiba even bother releasing the next gen of hd dvd players??? I mean...they cancelled their CES showing, later Toshiba, Universal, and Paramount have made statements that they are stil sticking with hd dvd. However newer meatier release are coming few and far between. I know we have Beuwolf, American Gangster, and Bee movie to look forward to. But I want to see some future releases being annonced...like some classic Paramount and Universal films. Thoughts and opinions my red brethern???

Hope you are right bat. I feel that hd dvd has so much still to offer and is only going to get better. But all the negative, ''writing on the wall'', ''hd dvd is dead'' type press camp red has been getting lately makes me a bit worried.

G4 players will come at some point. But the "big, classic" releases likely won't (at least not in mass). Unless something catastrophic happens, Uni and Paramount will go Blu (by either being exclusive or dual) at some point and both studios know that. They're gonna save those big titles for that day.

I'm not a fanboy of either format, so nobody needs to attempt to discredit me. Clicking on my sig will show you that I own more red titles than most HD DVD heads.

Robert over at AVS have said that there are more players comming. He is a big seller of HD DVD so he is kindof a Toshiba insider.

My other post was make holding a baby, hence the shortness. LOL

That is a prety cool talent you have there. Holding a baby while you are posting...no doubt while getting hit by your wife because you were not paying full attention to the baby,lol. Unless you were lucky and she was not present. I could not do that. There would be a terrible, SMELLY accident all over the place,lol.
