News: Microsoft, Intel Back HD-DVD Format

As originally approved last year (Feb 2004) when the DVD Forum endorsed it, tonite Bloomberg carries a press release in Japan that Microsoft and Intel will back the HD-DVD format. (Full press release is also available here on MSN Money Central). See also the discussion and announcements of the content to be available later this year. As reported this summer, the Xbox 360 may eventually support HD-DVD at some point.
