LG: No hybrid Blu-Ray/HD DVD players

LG has dropped the idea of releasing a hybrid player that can handle both of the competing high-definition disc formats, according to Ars Technica; the company will, instead, return to its earlier focus on players that can only load Blu-Ray discs. Ars notes that there are multiple hurdles to overcome before hybrid players are even possible, including chipset development and the exclusivity of manufacturers' licensing terms (e.g., Blu-Ray licensees can't develop hybrid players).
