Best Buy Removes HD DVD, Expands Blu-ray?
After seeing rumours that Best Buy was going to remove and send back all of its HD DVD titles early this morning, I decided last night to visit my local Best Buy to take a picture for a ‘before and after’ comparison.
To my surprise, when I got there I saw no trace of HD DVD – like it had never existed. So no ‘before’ picture for me.
I am not sure if my local store jumped the gun or if the HD DVDs were returned in more of a phased process as opposed to all at once, but nobody at my local Best Buy would have been able to get their Digital Video Essentials Basics disc.
We also got word today that other Best Buy’s did indeed pull their HD DVD stock this morning.
Please respond in comments regarding what is happening at your Best Buy. One has to wonder how the future HD DVD titles from Warner will sell if the major retailers refuse to stock them. I would assume that the online retailers at least will stock HD DVDs to then end.
