TOKYO (AP) -- Japanese electronics maker Toshiba Corp. said Thursday
it will start selling high-definition players supporting its HD DVD
format in the United States in March _ the first commercial launch of
the product in the world.

The new HD DVD players _ HD-XA1 and HD-A1, priced at $799 and $499
respectively _ will hit the U.S. market about the time major
Hollywood studios are expected to unveil HD DVD movie titles, the
company said.

Toshiba said in a release it will be the first high-definition player
sold in the world.

The move will heat up the battle in the high-stakes market for the
next generation of video discs.
