    Warner’s going to wonder why they even extended hd dvd releases until May.

    It will certainly become increasingly difficult to find retailers willing to sell them.

    I imagine that Amazon will keep them until they sell out and no more are made though.

    Yeah it’s all going to be online only, I haven’t seen a new HD disc in any retailer’s store. Of course since Best Buy dropped the format altogether it makes it real hard regardless.
