Re: Best Buy To Recommend Blu-ray As Preferred HD Format
The BB decision makes sense, they want people who buy a HDTV to take home a HDM player with them.
From what I've heard from sales people I've talked to (& not just BB sales people) is it's hard to get people to spend the money on HDM when they have to choose between 2 incompatible formats when they know one of those formats will be obsolete at the end of the war.
I've seen this coming for a while, hd-dvd & Blu-Ray software started out with the same amount of shelf space, in my local stores Blu-Ray now has almost twice the shelf space as hd-dvd.
Toshiba is running out of time, they need to do something huge to stay in the game or bow out.
