WAL-MART Shoots Down Cheap HD DVD Rumor

Wal-Mart denied rumors that it had placed a substantial order with a Taiwan supplier for ultra-cheap HD DVD players that could swing the format wars in that direction.

A spokesperson for the company said Thursday that reported leak concerning Taiwan-based consumer electronics manufacturer, Fuh Yuan, partnering with TDK in China to manufacture the $250-299 players, had no merit. The report first appeared in AVS Forums, and was picked up by other Web sites.

I know Walmart is cheap, but that rumored price was insane. I did believe it though because of all the news on how Blu Ray was winning you figured HD-DVD had something coming. O well.
