Vudu offering HD downloads, say goodbye to HD DVD and Blu-ray

You know this big ol' format war between HD DVD and Blu-ray? Well, I hope you haven't spent too much money choosing sides. That's because sooner rather than later we're not going to be all that interested in either format, what with them being physical and all. Yes, the era of HD content in digital formats is coming right at us.

Here's the first shot fired: Vudu, the video-on-demand box, will be offering all current and new customers free HD copies of The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy for free, with an option to download a copy of The Bourne Ultimatum for $25. Well, the price is right on those first two at least. Look for getting movies like this to be the way it's done in the future, and look for major tech companies to have stacks of unsold Blu-ray and HD DVD players collecting dust in warehouses everywhere.
