Toshiba wants unified DVD format | Reuters.com

A rather bizarre quote from Toshiba President Atsutoshi Nishida has been carried by Reuters (click link above), in which he suggests that there might still be an opportunity to unify the rival and disc formats.
“We have not given up on a unified format. We would like to seek ways for unifying the standards if opportunities arise,” he’s quoted as saying, at a recent shareholders meeting in Japan.
Perhaps Toshiba’s topper has read Sony’s latest hardware delay as a confidence wobble that he can exploit. Wishful thinking, perhaps, but the HD DVD camp certainly seems to have the upper hand at the moment.
