    Wal-Mart Goes Blu-ray Exclusive in June



    Wal-Mart is going Blu-ray exclusive by June. While Netflix and Best Buy pulling Blu were hard blows to HD DVD, when the world's largest public corporation won't stock your products, you're basically doomed. Wal-Mart is the avenue to the unwashed masses, and, as an emerging format, if you're not rolling on it, you've effectively fallen off the radar of millions of people. It's probable Toshiba already knew this, hence the rumors of it finally pulling the plug. If they weren't considering it before, it's gotta weigh heavy on them now.

    Toshiba should just give up.

    Finally, a clear sign of domination. I hated walking into a best buy and seeing two new formats. Was just silly. Now I can breathe easier.

    Wait for version 2.0 players...

    Even though all players will be able to play all movies, some special features may not be available to you if you don't get a BD spec. 2.0 player!

    I have a working HD-DVD player. The screen does not have to be liquid crystal perfect to please me so this doesn't really affect me. About Toshiba, let's hope they made enough money off their TVs and laptops. ;)
