A Toshiba Entertainment representative told CNET Japan that the company plans to release titles in the HD-DVD format on March 28. This supports the company's assertion during January's Consumer Electronics Show that it would release an HD-DVD player in March. At the time, Toshiba said the first players would cost $499 and $799.

 

Jiji-tsushin, a news outlet in Japan, reported that Toshiba will release a HD-DVD drive for PCs in April and an HD-DVD recorder in May. Toshiba earlier said they would release a notebook with an HD-DVD drive and discuss the specs this quarter. Toshiba leads the HD-DVD camp. Sony, Samsung and Philips are part of the rival Blu-ray camp. Blu-ray players will come out later in the year and cost more.

 

Yuhei Iwamoto of CNET Japan reported from Tokyo.
