On Monday, Paramount and DreamWorks said they were dropping Blu-ray in favour of the rival HD-DVD format.

The announcement means that blockbusters like Shrek the Third, and Bay's Transformers film, will not be released on Blu-ray.

Very interesting that Paramount have dropped Blu-ray, maybe sales of HD-DVD are currently surpassing sales of Blu-ray, there must be some reason behind the decision.
