    What are you talking about? Walk down to your mom and pop' department store and ask them if they have health care. I bet the employees would laugh at you. As far as I know, Walmart offers higher pay rates than almost any department store. They have their sh*t together, thats how they have become so successful. They are at a point, financial-wise to not give up, they want to expand even more.

    My girlfriend is a manager at Walmart, and she enjoys her job quite a bit. She makes enough for a college student. They're a department store, plain and simple.

    Anyway, I don't think thats going to kill Sony. Without gaming, and Blueray, theres still a huge company. If they fail with Blueray they would support HD.

    EDIT:Samxcor3, The Early November quit making music?? That sucks.

    And do they force people to shop there and no longer go to the local businesses?

    Local businesses are putting themselves out of business.

    Yeah, I found several sites debunking this - the "Walmart" player price I see being quoted is $299, which is still a good deal ($14 new discs would be outstanding).
