There's a new battle in the war over high-definition DVD formats.Toshiba announced Monday that it is slashing prices for its HD DVD players by as much as $200.

The format suffered a setback when Warner Brothers announced it would stop putting movies on HD DVD to concentrate on the Blu-Ray format.

Only two major studios support HD DVD, while five are backing Blu Ray.
