Funny most people would have said the opposite. If
WB want the war to end in order to grow the overall HD market (and they now say that's what they want) the smart thing to do would be to back Blu-ray. Backing HD DVD exclusively would just make this more of a stalemate, the last thing we need.
I just hope that Universal (and others) see sense now if their contracts allow it.
What surprises me, somewhat, is that WB was originally HD DVD exclusive and for most of their neutral phase treated BD pretty poorly with the fairly lame excuses for not releasing certain titles.
