LG Electronics to support Blu-ray and HD DVD

As the next generation DVD format war begins to heat up properly, LG Electronics has announced that it is to support HD DVD as well as Blu-ray in the coming war. Prior to this, LG was on the side of Blu-ray, but decided last month to also support HD DVD as well. LG expects to announce the first product later this year.

"We will do both," European president James Kim told Reuters.
