Please, let it end. According to this, the Nikkei is now reporting that Toshiba president Atsutoshi Nishida will be announcing the final discontinuation of HD DVD tomorrow, as well as halted sales of hardware and media by March. Like, within two weeks.

According to that Engadget report, Toshiba is planning to just pull all HD-DVD-related stock off store shelves and make no compensation to adopters. The announcement is expected to be made alongside another piece of news about semi-conductors, designed to overshadow the fact that Toshiba just binned hundreds of millions of dollars in the disc war against Blu-ray.
