HD DVD: Fight or Quit (Preferably Quit)

Let's take a moment to push for the end of the pointless war that nobody wanted; the costly quagmire that's drained resources and consumed the media with its constant, bloody scrimmages.

The story is too old to be commented.

lol

I stopped reading at this line.
***In the past few weeks, Sony’s Blu-ray next-generation DVD format has enjoyed several victories over Toshiba’s rival HD DVD: Target will sell only Blu-ray players this holiday season.***

Target will still sell HD-DVD.

and they will sell HD DVD standalone players online. But they will sell PS3 and standalone blu-ray players in store and online.

Edit: How can you disagree this is what target said. lol

Edit2:This is from Forbes.com who actually spoke to Target.

this is what it says

Target (nyse: TGT - news - people ) said it will sell the Sony (nyse: SNE - news - people ) BDP-S300 for $499 in October and display it along with Blu-ray DVDs from three studios, including Sony Corp. and The Walt Disney Co. (nyse: DIS - news - people ), at the ends of store aisles.

Target does not sell high-def DVD players in its stores, although it does sell a Toshiba HD DVD player for $299 on its Web site.

Target stores do sell an HD DVD add-on for the Microsoft (nasdaq: MSFT - news - people ) Xbox 360. They also sell Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3, which comes with a Blu-ray player built in.

Target would not say why it decided to sell only Blu-ray players in stores. Sony is paying a fee to have its products featured in the end-of-aisle display, called an endcap, although Sony executives said the retailer contacted them about the decision.

"We are not proclaiming one format vs. the other as the preferred consumer technology, and software will continue to be available to our guests in both the Blu-ray and HD DVD format," Target spokeswoman Brie Heath said.

Target will track customer feedback and adjust offerings as necessary, Heath said.

Turns out they're just installing Blu-ray aisle end caps, thanks to a new promotional deal with Sony, but HD DVD isn't going anywhere.

There you guys go.
Proof.

be back with the link.... This is from Forbes.com who actually spoke to Target. Your links are from the same story at Engadget who spoke to Major Nelson from Microsoft. Who are you going to believe Major Nelson or Target the company that made the announcement.

Edit @ below I've had your comments on ignore for a long time now but i noticed in some stories you posted below me. I can't see what your saying nor do i wish to because usually they are filled with nonsense and it looks like the other 8 people that have you on ignore agree with me. So its pointless to reply to me because i do not see your comments. Have a nice day!

Yes drty! preach the word brother! we must stop the conspiracy of major nelson and microsoft. *rolls eyes*

The HD DVD PR team sent us a statement from Universal Studios VP Ken "Graffeo stating the deal amounted only to an "end cap" purchased by Sony putting its BDP-S300 in stores."

DrPirate3461d ago (Edited 3461d ago )

It also hurts the consumer alot more. It's selfish.

Edit:...someone has a vendetta against me. I can't escape getting disagreed with.

how would xbox lose???

ReBurn3461d ago

Because fanboys believe that Microsoft created HD-DVD and that somehow it is tied to Xbox. But the rest of us live in the real world and know that HD-DVD and Xbox 360's only connection is an add-on drive that you don't have to buy if you don't want it.

Another day, another similar article. I called this spamming.
