HD-DVD to launch two days before PS3

According to a report by the BBC, Toshiba’s first HD-DVD player will arrive in Europe on November 15th, having already sold 50,000 units in the US and Japan. While Samsung releases the first Blu-Ray player in October, the PS3 is set to be the highest profile Blu-Ray device by far when it launches on November 17th.

Sony’s Blu-Ray discs have more memory and will have the backing of the much-anticipated PS3. Toshiba is targeting 200,000 units sold by the end of the year, with the first models of the new hardware set to cost around £400 compared with PS3’s £425.
