Video Business reports that slowly but surely, many retailers are removing HD DVD players and titles from stores, with some leaving only their websites for HD DVD needs. However this rejection of HD DVD isn't as big as some may hope. In some shops, HD DVD is still being sold, however Blu-ray is now gaining more shelf space since January 4th (Warner announcement).
"To date, studios and retailers have blamed format war confusion for stopping consumers from adopting high-def.
Trans World, which operates more than 800 F.Y.E. storefronts, will be giving more catalog room to BD titles than HD DVD titles. Also, in the coming months, Trans World plans to order select, key new releases on HD DVD, while continuing to take in most new BD releases."
Video Business doesn't report however that stores and online stores like amazon or Best Buy are informing customers about the Warner announcement but wont declare HD DVD is dead...yet.
