    "US, June 18, 2007 - Today Blockbuster announced it is expanding its offering of Blu-Ray movies from its initial 250 stores (which stock both Blu-ray and HD-DVD) to 1,700 locations. The HD-DVD format is not receiving the same boost in supply. Both formats will continue to be available online and from the initial 250 stores that introduced the high-definition formats last year.

    Blockbuster said the decision to multiply its Blu-ray stock by almost seven times its initial offering was made based on consumer demand.

    "We intend to meet the demands of our customers and based on the trends we're seeing, we're expanding our Blu-ray inventory to ensure our stores reflect the right level of products," said Matthew Smith, SVP Merchandising for Blockbuster. "While it is still too early to say which high-definition format will become the industry standard, we will continue to closely monitor customer rental patterns both at our stores and online, so we can adjust our inventory mix accordingly and ensure that Blockbuster is offering customers the most convenient access to the movies they want, in the format they want."

    Blu-ray rentals are significantly outpacing those of HD-DVD at Blockbuster. The retailer says it can "add HD-DVD to more locations if that's what customers tell us they want."

    Beyond movies, the Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats are associated with Sony's PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360, respectively. A win in the format wars for Sony would be a win for the PlayStation 3. Blockbuster is the leader in the movie rental market, and the support it is giving to Sony's format is good news for the struggling PS3 (which many owners joke they currently use more for movie-viewing than gaming)."

    Another boost for Blue Ray, it's clear Blue Ray is doing far better than Hd-Dvd, Blue Ray so far is winning the format war, more people are buying Blue Ray movies than Hd-Dvd, if Blue Ray win, good bye 360, people under-estimated Sony's knowledge of knowing what the consumer wants, it appears they want Blue Ray, another win for Sony and Blue Ray, thats what, 181 companys backing Blue Ray now?
    Just got my Ps3! The Wii is now gathering dust until Super Smash Brawl!

    why is it bye bye for 360 if blu ray wins? HDdvd format will shatter but im sure there will be enough people out there still buying games for it? i dunno this is going to be interesting to see in the end because with the previous format wars there wasnt 2 gaming consoles using one or the other.

    Seriously, big deal. The Wii doesnt utilize big hardware. How many times has this been mentioned and turned into a whole thread about in the PS3 SECTION? You guys got anything better to do then rant about the same useless crap all day? lol.

    All 3 Systems are good, and none of you (however much you think you do) know what is going to happen by the end of this generation.

    EDIT:
