HD DVD responds, oh snap!

The companies of the HD DVD Promotional Group today issued a statement in response to the decision by Warner Home Video to exclusively back the Blu-ray format:

While Warner’s decision is a setback for HD DVD, the consumer has benefited from HD DVD’s commitment to quality and affordability – a bar that is critical for the mainstream success of any format. We believe widespread adoption of a next generation format will ultimately be determined by the consumer.

HD DVD ought to go on that Yo’ Mama show. Blu-Ray must still be reeling from the force of this shattering riposte from the HD DVD Promotional Group.
