No hard feelings on Blu-ray


Days
after Toshiba waved the white flag on the HD standards war, it seems to have signed a deal with Sony to buy its microchip production facilities in western Japan for US$835 million.

The equipment will be used by their semiconductor joint venture that will make high-performance Cell chips and RSX graphic chips, both used in Sony's PlayStation 3 game console, as well as other microchips that go into Toshiba products.

Sony has had enough of cutting edge chip production and said that it would prefer to sell production facilities for making key microchips used in the PS3 to Toshiba.

News of the pact was announced in Octoberm but its details had not been established.
