Toshiba finally gives into Blu-Ray

Anyone remember HD-DVD?? Who was making those discs??? Oh yeah, that’s right, Toshiba! Way back in February of 2008, Toshiba had to pull out of the HD format wars and succeed to Sony’s Blu-Ray. Now almost 18 months later, they have decided to produce their own Blu-Ray player! They are looking into better technologies, to speed up the players and put their own spin on it, but now with the price of Blu-ray players coming below $200, now is a good time as any!
