Target expands Blu-ray space for hardware, software. Move a response to customer demand

VB:Target has significantly stepped up its Blu-ray Disc software and hardware merchandising, as it responds to rising customer demand for the format.

Starting in July, the chain reconfigured its home entertainment sections, granting Blu-ray titles 18 feet of in-rack display space. For two Los Angeles-area stores, that amounts to room for 150 title facings, marking a 67% jump from these same outlets' disc slots in May.

"Our goal is to create a fun, intuitive shopping environment where our guests will find all of there wants and needs under one roof," Target spokesman Joshua Thomas said. "Our guests are becoming increasingly interested in high-definition, and we are committed to providing them with a great assortment of the industry's best solutions."

Typical MS and their BS

DARK KNIGHT , LBP and RESISTANCE 2 will give the final death blow to X360 , DVD and MS

That's almost what I was going to say 'but but but blue rae is teh suckz and HD-DVD drools, I mean rulez!' People can speculate that BD is never going to hit like DVD but all signs point to a big fat yes it is. Don Resinger, Aaron 'fatass' Greenberg, and any other naysayers might as well pull their heads out of each others butts and give each other a big fat kiss. Maybe then they will all get sick and die

The xbug 3rd60 sucks still using last gen. dvd no wonder gears of war 1.5 looks like a wii game and its only 2 hours long!

Greenberg said Bluray is not making inroads. According to him, all people buying HDTVs will prefer sd dvd.

Maybe Target Corp. didn't get the memo?

/sarcasm

MAR-TYR-DOM3657d ago

are Greenberg and Patcher related?

I have noticed in-store Best buy, blockbuster,etc + online retailers bluray stock growing.The funniest thing is these guys makes these comments and then hulk makes some STUPID numbers. These guys get blown UP as fanboys, and in the process lose all credibility(what little is left).

Seriously now, how many units do you guys think DARK KNIGHT is gonna push?!?!?!?!?!? LOL. yeah, bluray is teh dooomzed

We can go on all day with facts....but the sales speak for themselves....the PQ and the 7.1 ROAR for themselves. I dont understand how some choose to ignore the same thing that has happened for 2 generations of sony hardware.........in case some dont remember. Currently, All signs point to sony winning the public over with yet another Storage format.

juuken3657d ago

Lol, I thought bluray died? xD;

Bathyj3657d ago

Ha, as soon as I read the title, I knew someone would say "but, but, but".

Oh yeah, go BR !

MNicholas3657d ago

by all except those who are left-overs from the Dreamcast fan club.

badz1493657d ago

are payed retards! GreenB is payed to talk rubbish and stay in the present time forever by refusing to see that the future is blu and Pachter is payed to pull numbers or whatever sh!t out his a$$ and post them as news! those 2 will never learn!

I remember at the time when HDDVD was still around, M$ offered the add-on and when being interviewed about the purpose, GreenB or whoever it was from M$ said that they are giving what the people wants! now that HDDVD is dead, they totally dump the format and stretch their effort to DD! (although at the same time selling a HDD-less SKU) so, what happen to all those "giving what the people wants" thing?

SL1M DADDY3657d ago

Hope the fanboys eat it up. As for me, BD is alive and well in my house. I have yet to buy a standard DVD since I bought the PS3. BD just looks too good to settle for upscaling.

TDK will push 1 million in its first week.

Make all the space you want but I'm not going to pay $25-30 bucks per Blu ray movie. I have about 50 Blu titles (550-600 dvd titles) but most came from sales where the price was $15-20, which i have no problem paying. I still buy the heck out of used dvd's because if the title isn't heavy on computer animation or effects, then why not get 4 movies for $20? Seriously thirty bucks for a movie. ANyway glad they're expanding because I shop there a lot.

eric1003657d ago

PS3 will tear away TRASH BOX 3 FIX ME in October, November and December

600k PS3s would be sold worldwide just for DARK KNIGHT alone not to mention LBP , Resistance 2 and Motorstorm 2
