The momentous battle between Blu Ray and HD DVDs is finally over as Toshiba have officially quit.

Toshiba Corp decided to bow out of the race as they have lost support from key studios.

Blu Ray backed by Sony will now be the standard technology for next generation discs which should move things along in the industry because up until now consumers were torn between the two.

“This was a very difficult decision to make … but when we thought about the trouble we would cause to consumers and our partners, we decided it was not right for us to keep going with such a small presence,” Toshiba Chief Executive Atsutoshi Nishida told a news conference.

It seems the last nail in the coffin for HD DVD was Warner Bros defection to Blu Ray last month reported Reuters.
