Wal-Mart Names HD DVD the Winner

There is one retailer that has the power to call the winner of the protracted Blu-Ray vs. HD DVD fight and that vendor is Wal-Mart. Over the weekend they apparently leaked plans to bring in a massive number of low cost (possibly sub $200) HD DVD players for Christmas.

The manufacturing side of this has apparently been in the works for a few years but this is the first time we have had projected prices for the result.

And if they premote HD-DVD over Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray is going to have a hard time.

And we're still running off a bad translation. A translation that said "blu-ray hd-dvd"...a name that everyone in europe gives to blu-ray discs. Hell my mum calls blu-ray...blu-ray HD-DVD since she thinks it isn't a dvd, it's a high-def dvd.

Also a translation which said it was made by TDK...blu-ray. And let alone Walmart pushes blu-ray.

We'll see when we get a proper translation. But there really should be anough of these guys running off the same article...it's just rehashing stuff which we don't know and he says it at the end "if this is true..." How is that news?

The hicks that shop at Walmart can't afford the HDTV to play them on.
