Microsoft Discontinues HD DVD Drives

Not that anyone could have realistically expected things to get any better for HD-DVD, ever since Toshiba announced that they were officially dropping support of their hi-def format, but it’s still a bit painful to watch manufacturers flee support like rats from a sinking ship.
Microsoft, once one of the format’s strongest supporters (if only because its chief competitor, Blu-Ray, was being pushed by the same people who make the Playstation), announced over the weekend they will stop manufacturing external hard drives for the Xbox 360.
