With the high-def DVD format war still raging between Blu-ray and HD-DVD factions, the launch of two hybrid solutions could come as sweet relief to indecisive early adopters.
The on-again, off-again dual-format DVD player from South Korean firm LG is on again, the BBC announced today. LG's hybrid will play both Sony's Blu-ray and Toshiba's HD-DVD discs, and is said to go on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Monday.
The player will launch at the same time as Warner Bros' hybrid double-sided HD-DVD/Blu-ray disc, also on display at CES, says the BBC.
When these solutions will actually go on sale to NZ consumers (and if so, how much they will cost) is still anyone's guess.
UPDATE: The dual-format player was officially launched on Monday 8 January. You read it here first...
