Wal-Mart drops HD-DVD

Surely this means the end? Wal-Mart is to completely drop HD-DVD players and movies by June. You can’t get much more final than that. The company officially announced its intentions today, saying, “By June Wal-Mart will only be carrying Blu-ray movies and hardware machines, and of course standard-def movies, DVD players, and up-convert players.”

If HD-DVD manages to survive after this, we’ll eat our hats. And we don’t have hats, so that tells you how final this is.
