Circuit City Trading In HD DVD for Blu-Ray Players, Says Employee

According to a Circuit City employee in Chicago, the consumer electronics chain is trading in HD DVD players bought into their stores "within 3 months of the announcement," as opposed to their 30-day return policy. According to the internal memo announcing the demise of the format, they will either give customers a Blu-ray player-paying the price difference, if any-or a gift card. The trade-in, however, will not be widely promoted and it will be only made available if the customer asks for it.

All is not lost yet guys, you still have a chance to get some of your money back. Unless of course you would want the HD DVD as a collectors item. I know it will be worth a lot in the future.

very good deal for those who regret getting the HDDVD player and want to change to Bluray. But I still think many people will want to keep the HDDVD player and will wait for BD players to drop more before they start buying them.

What are Circuit City going to do with all those HD-DVD then???

I don't know if toshiba is taking them back and using them as scrap. Isn't HD-DVD still around in the PC market? I know not for movies but, for storage mediums? Who knows ... I just have a hard time thinking that companies are willing to loose cash on these things just for us, the consumer.

that's considerate of them. most businesses wouldn't do such thing. i wonder what will happen to those players? scrap parts or something?
