HD DVD Really Dead Now: Paramount Following Warner to Blu-ray-Only Party

ParamountGate.JPGFinancial Times is reporting that Paramount has a clause in its HD DVD exclusivity contract allowing them to bail from the sinking HD DVD ship if Warner defected to Blu-ray, and they are "poised" to do so. Warner's switch already put 70 percent of Hollywood's output on Blu-ray—Paramount rolling Blu-ray too would promptly and undoubtfully close the books on HD DVD's future in Hollywood. [Financial Times]
