Did HD-DVD win the war against BluRay this week?

From APC Magazine:
To the uninitiated, HD DVD’s future looked brighter than ever earlier this week with the news that it gained backwards compatibility with a layer that will be playable in existing DVD players.

Unveiled by Toshiba and Memory-Tech, a triple-layer HD DVD/DVD medium could have, in theory, been enough to topple its competing, next-generation optical format, Blu-ray. As a result, many people are already claiming Blu-ray is dead.

This is about where I laugh intensely and pull the forgotten rabbit out of the hat. Some of you may wish to sit down for this.

Blu-ray can already do this.

Needless to say, a hybrid is exactly what is needed to encourage migration to a new format. Such a system would no doubt prove popular to most consumers.
