Toshiba recently held their annual shareholders' meeting, and among the typical fiduciary jargon was stern criticism for the people behind HD DVD and Blu-ray for not being able to settle on a unified format.

Toshiba prez Atsutoshi Nishida still has hopes for a more universal next-gen format. He stated, "We have not given up on a unified format. We would like to seek ways for unifying the standards if opportunities arise."Toshiba of course is a big player in the HD DVD market, having released their HD-A1 player earlier in the year. With many people saying that HD DVD has an uphill battle against Blu-ray, it's not surprising that Toshiba would now criticize the home entertainment format war. You don't see Sony or Samsung, big Blu-ray supporters, having any quibbles over the battle.

Of course, the first Blu-ray player, the BD-P1000 by Samsung launched on Sunday, officially jumpstarting the new war for living room dominance.
