'After careful consideration, market analysis and such, we have decided that now is the time to issue our films on Blu-Ray.

It was a difficult decision, but as no one seems to be answering the phones at Toshiba, we don't have much choice in the matter.

As our consumers know, we are fully committed to Blu-Ray as the best format for delivering HD content and look forward to charging 10% more than all the other distributors (for said content) in a money grubbing attempt to recoup our losses on the titles such as Blades of Glory and Top Gun.

All the best and a happy Blu Year to all who have supported us over the last, oh say, 10 months or so, for today is, in a very real sense, a Red letter day for them.

Well... Did they have a choice?
Wonder if Michael Bay with STFU now...
Glad it's all over.  Hopefully we'll see some announcements over the next few months of major Universal and Paramount titles coming to Blu-ray.
That's great, but i still prefer using my HD DVD player over my Blu-Ray player. How long will it take them to get to profile 2.0 again? Now there's no hurry at all.
Paramount finally goes Blu!

High-def format war ends; studios going Blu
Analysts react to HD DVD demise

All six major Hollywood studios are now in the Blu-ray Disc camp, a day after Toshiba has pulled the plug on HD DVD and Blu-ray became effectively the only next-gen game in town.

Paramount Home Entertainment quietly came onboard via a statement sent exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday: "We are pleased that the industry is moving to a single high-definition format, as we believe it is in the best interest of the consumer," the statement reads. "As we look to (begin) releasing our titles on Blu-ray, we will monitor consumer adoption and determine our release plans accordingly."
