Wal-Mart: Please Steal Our HD DVDs

walmartsec.pngDuring a trip to our local Wal-Mart Supercenter, we noticed the store had added security devices to all of their Blu-ray movies. The thing we found odd about this, is they didn’t add them to their HD DVD movie inventory.

We wonder if this is because thieves prefer Blu-ray, or if they plan on sending back their HD DVD inventory like Best Buy has done.

    I’ve been on the lookout for Wal Mart’s HD DVD Clearance sales (although I have all ten titles they have carried) but lately they continue to move them around too much. Circuit City had a 50% sale a few weeks back as well, not sure if they have any left or whatever but I picked up a few titles.

    They probably realize that very few people will be stealing HD DVD’s at this point compared to regular DVD’s and Blu Rays.

    Perhaps, in reality – people are coming into walmart and re-stocking HD-DVDs themselves…

    Maybe people who buy HD DVDs are more honest than those who buy Blu-ray..

    People who buy HD DVD are certainly more honest than those who steal Blu-ray… :)

    With HD-DVD on the shelves – Toshiba & HD-DVD is still poised for a surprising comeback from the rear!

    er, no.

    As of today, the number of HiDef titles is exploding. From April 15> July, there are 100 announced titles. Many of these are A+ type titles from all major studios including Disney.

    But none of the titles listed are from Paramount or Universal still! These guys are coming out with title, but they still have some ramping up to do. I imagine that with this format war over, the current Blu-Ray studios are keeping the replicator companies busy. So when more factories are built, then we’ll see titles from P & U.

    This is exactly WHY the war had to end – it prevent the release of titles as studios and consumers were awaiting on the fence.

    BTW: channel surfing… why is there wrestling on the SciFi channel? I mean, yeah – its fake, but there are not aliens or strange mutant monsters fighting the semi-mutant human actors.
