Wal*Mart kicks HD DVD to the curb

If I weren’t hungover you’d see a Wal*Mart logo on the truck with some HD DVD logos sticking out of the pile. Just imagine that. K? THX.

Things couldn’t possibly get any worse for the HD DVD group today, but they did. A buyer for Wal*Mart is reporting that the giant retailer is kicking the format to the curb and will be Blu-ray exclusive by June.

Enough about my family and on to the Wal-Mart plans… by June Wal-Mart will only be carrying BluRay movies and hardware machines, and of course standard def movies, DVD players, and up convert players. Not sure of the short term pricing plans, but history tells us that as more people move to a new technology prices typically go down.

It was fun while it lasted, HD DVD. It really was. I’ll continue to watch Transformers on HD DVD, though.
