Another format war come and gone?

The battle between BluRay and HD DVD seems to be drawing to a close, with a whimper and a draw. There is no clear resolution in sight, so the 2 sides have agreed to try to combine the formats into something that combines both. No word on what that will really do to expected production times, but CoolTechZone can give you a lot of other info.
"With many Blu-Ray and HD DVD supporters agreeing to support both formats as opposed to one, this
news shouldn't come as a surprise. What's interesting is that founders of the aforementioned
standards believe that both formats will end up merging to create a unified format."
