Not much to see. It has already been said, but here it is:

"The Best Buy Company, the consumer electronics chain, said Monday that it would recommend that consumers choose Sony’s Blu-ray high-definition video format.

The decision gives Sony yet another victory in the battle with HD DVD, from the Toshiba Corporation, to be the high-definition DVD format of choice.

Earlier Monday, the online video rental company Netflix said it would exclusively stock Blu-ray DVDs after some of the world’s biggest movie studios decided in favor of that format.

Best Buy said it believed consumers would benefit from the choice of one high-definition format.

Best Buy will prominently feature Blu-ray hardware and software beginning in March, but will also carry HD DVD products for customers who want those, Best Buy said."


Even less info than we already knew elsewhere.

It's awesome when people don't read even the last 8 or 10 posts before making theirs.

I love reading the same stuff over and over again. Thanks Ken!

Regarding Netflix's decision to go exclusively with Blu-Ray: Ten minutes after I received their e-mail...I had become a happy member of Blockbuster's online video rental. I suggest that all Netflix customers who own an HD DVD player do likewise. One can only wonder how much money was exchanged under the table to get Netflix to do this.

While I share in the frustration over this issue, at least we are heading towards a single unified HD format, and let's all just be thankful for that!
