This might be a couple of days old and not entirely unexpected, but there's no saying "I will love you forever" than taking the risk of dying with your partner. That's what Samsung has done with Sony and Blu-ray -- they're taking the deep dive together. Samsung has announced it plans to support Blu-ray 100%, never releasing or supporting HD-DVD. They also have no intention to develop the combo devices that play both formats (which is entirely possible, but for some reason, the DVD war has to continue... sigh). Korea-based LG Electronics also has sided with Sony and Samsung, stating they won't be making any HD-DVD players. Seems that it won't be the lack of movie sales that will decide the winner -- it'll be the lack of players!
