Wal-Mart: Out With HD DVD and in With Blu-ray

As the Blu-ray/HD DVD war continues with Netflix and Best Buy recently making the switch to Blu-ray, things are certainly looking gloomy for the future of HD DVD products. The hardest hit came today, with Wal-Mart announcing that it would be pulling the plug on on HD DVD and moving exclusively toward Blu-ray format movies and players.
By June, 4,000 Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores will offer only Blu-ray movies and hardware machines, as well as standard definition movies and DVD players. In the meantime, Wal-Mart will slowly be selling off the rest of its HD DVD products. If everything looks as good as Beyoncé in Blu-ray, then I may also have to make the switch!

I guess we'll have to switch formats yet again but as long as we can afford it, why not? Although I won't invest on an expensive player yet, not until almost everyone uses blu-ray..

I guess that settles that then. Walmart caters to the masses and if the masses will only be able to buy blu-ray, other people will have to follow suit. I have my 1080p TV ready. :)

Yeah, BluRay is going to win. We bought a PS3 a while ago for this reason. Poor Toshiba. Oh well, I can't wait until this format war is over and done with.
