Default Toshiba's Announcement Impact on Imports

I hope the answer is no because I want the T2 Ultimate Edition HD-DVD...but...Has the Toshiba announcement killed HD-DVD across the globe? Also, does anyone know the impact this will have on future releases...most importantly T2?

Kinowelt have said T2 its other releases in March are still coming.
Of course it will affect HD imports around the world, maybe not as bad as US releases, because its smaller studios can survive on smaller profit, as there are still 1-1.3 mil HD players out there, if the movies still sell then they will still put them out, imo i think medium studios will support it until after xmas 08, and in 09 only smaller independants will continue maybe with couple releases a month....

Damn. I know 100 ways someone could missinterpret your sentence.

Before I realised that you meant No Country For Old Men I was even angry by a little ammount that yet again someone is bashing.

I think it will be a great example of what HD can/could do.

High Def Media in general is a niche concept and always has been. I know which format I'll be purchasing on given the choice.
