In the battle for the next generation DVD format, things are really heating up with Paramount who also owns Dreamworks deciding to move exclusively to HD-DVD after initially supporting both formats.

“I believe HD DVD is not only the affordable high-quality choice for consumers, but also the smart choice for Paramount” said Brad Grey, CEO of Paramount.

The CEO of DreamWorks Animation, Jeffrey Katzenberg said “It’s a game-changer, what they’re doing, and it’s why we decided to throw in with them.”

This announcement means hit movies like “Shrek the Third” and “Transformers” along with movies distributed by Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks Pictures, Paramount Vantage, Nickelodeon Movies and MTV Films will now all be exclusive to HD-DVD.
