Wal-Mart takes Blu-ray over HD-DVD!!
From CNN.Money comes the news that ubiquitous retailer Wal-Mart has decided to go exclusively Blu-ray. According to a statement by Wal-Mart’s Senior Vice President of Home Entertainment Gary Severson, “We’ve listened to our customers, who are showing a clear preference toward Blu-ray products and movies with their purchases.” – Kotaku.com
“Wal-Mart will continue to sell HD-DVD products in the coming months, but expect to be Blu-ray exclusive soon with a heavy shift happening in the next thirty days. Add to that this week’s announcement of Netflix’s Blu-ray exclusivity and you’ve got what looks like an end in sight to the format wars.” – Kotaku.com
Wow, I guess HD-DVD will probably go down before July. That’s kinda funny how this all went down. Too bad the people want Blu-ray and Wall-mart listened, congrats to them on that. What do you think?
