Default Warner Bros to discontinue HD DVD/DVD Combo Format

This may have already been posted, but I could not find it on AVS.

Beginning in January 2008, the HD-DVD Combo will be discontinued by Warner Home Video for the Theatrical New Release Business Unit. Warner will be offering the HD version only.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be the last title we are offering the HD-DVD Combo for. The Invasion will be the first HD only title on the TNR release slate.

Blehhh... I love combos, and I hate it that Warner had to do this; I suppose it cuts costs.

GREAT news! Unfortunately its Universal's combos that always lock up on me I wish they'd quit or do reissues (Army of darkness, Unleashed)

The only reason I want combos is for animated titles or titles that my kids like. It's nice to be able to flip the disc over and insert it in their travel DVD player for car trips.

Does anyone know if the SKUs between the combos and non-combos are the same?
