Ps3fanboy: After hearing the great news that we're getting 13 new Blu-ray releases this week, even more good news has leaked out. Target is reportedly doubling its Blu-ray shelf space as the retail giant continues to favor Sony's HD format.
from ITR. =P
where ya been man i dun see you online on psn anymore or isit my timing. we need to have a 1v1 game m8
Hell yeah DBZb we definitely need to link up. I'll be on tonite. C-ya ; )
Yea i did notice that my local target expanded the blu-ray section.
When I was in Target looking for Heavenly Sword last week they already had twice as much shelf space for Blu-Ray as HD-DVD. They had two columns of HD-DVD and 4 columns of Blu-Ray. And the selection still sucked.
Best Buy is doing the same...with both Blu-Ray AND HD-DVD.
We heard about this last week and the week before.
My local target used to have hd-dvd and blu ray next to each other, each with 3 verticle rows of movies with an information display between them. Today blueray has 4 of the rows and hd-dvd has 2, not a huge change, but something i noticed. My local best buy doesnt seem to have changed other than all the hd-dvd being marked down, but it could have been a sale.
It is believed that Sony paid target $50 million for the end-caps and additional shelf-space. The last thing Sony wants is the consumer choosing between Blu-ray and HD DVD. Why? Because HD DVD does everything Blu-ray can do (1080p, lossless audio) and more (web features, PiP) and it costs less.
lol dude sony is not like toshiba that need to pay 150 m to get a exclusive ... blu ray is superior and the sales show that ... and blue ray disks are cheaper than hd dvd disk . hd dvd fanboys are getting more and more low this days .. but well they have lose the intel exclusivity now stores are supporting more bluray lol
Yeah whatever. Then how come Blurays are flying off the shelf at my local Best Buy while most people can't even find the HDDVD section. On the flip side their Xbox 360 section is freaking huge while the PS3 section is shoved in corner with the neglected HDDVD movies LOL! It just goes to show you what really sells and whats not.
But its hard to scratch a blu ray compared to the easily scratched dvd. some people don't think that is important, but ask people how many times they had to rebuy a dvd cause it got scratched. thats extra money wasted. And please don't say people just need to take care of dvd. Cause some people do but things happen...
*raises hand* I have over 250ish dvds and have yet to scratch one. Unless you count that one that my ferret "attacked", but well I fault him for the destruction of my Water World DVD... At least he pick a movie truly worthy of destruction...
