HD-DVD Just Got a Shot in the Arm

Paramount Pictures is dropping its support for Blu-ray and is going exclusively with HD-DVD. This is a huge shot in the arm because it also includes all of the Dreamworks' titles as well.

"The competition between Blu-ray and HD-DVD has kept confused consumers from rushing to buy new DVD players until they can determine which format will dominate the market.

Studios and retailers have been choosing sides.

"Spider-Man 3" will only be available in the Blu-ray DVD format when it is released by Sony (nyse: SNE - news - people ) Pictures.

Likewise, people with Blu-ray players won't be able to enjoy the action-thriller "The Bourne Ultimatum," which Universal Pictures will release only in HD DVD."
