Circuit City rumoured to drop HD-DVD

1080living.com’s claiming that ubiquitous US electronics retailer Circuit City is dropping HD-DVD completely in favour of Blu-Ray.

"This move is for business reasons only as Circuit City is committed to the next generation of Hi Def DVD viewing," one store manager told the site. "Based on company sales of the two formats which consisted of 87 percent for Blu-Disc and 13 percent for HD the company felt that now should be the time to fully commit our resources to one format. Circuit City is the leader of technology and this move again reinforces out commitment to offering out customers the very best available. We expect our competitors to follow suit shortly."

There's no official confirmation of this as yet, but hopefully everyone else will follow suit sooner rather than later and we can stop thinking about the entire sorry issue.
