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.
