Onkyo abandons HD DVD

High-end electronics maker Onkyo is the latest party to end support for HD DVD, a new announcement reveals. Although some limited production for the format is expected by other companies, in the wake of Toshiba's abandonment Onkyo says it has reconsidered, and will thus end all production for HD DVD in a short space of time. "As Onkyo manufactures HD DVD players with core parts supplied by Toshiba," the announcement states, "it will be difficult for Onkyo to continue its further development and production of HD DVD players."

Prior to today, Onkyo had only managed to sell and ship some 2,000 HD DVD players; despite this, it says that it will continue to provide full support for its HD DVD products, including after-sales service. Any future HD products will be targeted at Blu-ray. [via TWICE]
