According to this, a final decision on the fate of HD-DVD may come from Toshiba as soon as Tuesday.

“A company official, speaking on condition of anonymity as she is not authorized to speak on the matter, said a board meeting could be held as soon as Tuesday, where a decision is likely,” said the AP report.

The news comes after NHK first published a piece saying Toshiba was the drop the ailing format, which was that backed up by a Reuters piece on Saturday. Engadget then posted this this morning, saying a final announcement is expected from Toshiba in the coming days.

    I’m glad it’s over. I’ve no intention of ever buying any hi-def DVDs of any flavour, but I hates format wars. ^_^

    I bet the disc industry’s happy too. There’ll be no confusion now.

    Aside from the whole ‘what does this more expensive disc offer me that DVD doesn’t?’ thing, that is. :-D
