Paramount to back Blu-Ray
In a surprise move, Paramount Pictures have jumped out of the HD-DVD camp and are now also backing the rival Blu-Ray format. The first of the studios to pledge to release titles on both formats, Paramount will bring a number of high-profile titles to help bolster Blu-Ray's catalogue including the massive Star Trek franchise.
Blu-Ray already has the more weighty backers including Sony who will be using the format in the PlayStation 3 and Fox and with the addition of Paramount to the line-up the smart money for many will be on Sony's format.
