Best Buy kicking HD DVD to curb
Although the nation’s leading electronics retailer claimed they would hold onto HD DVD for existing customers, some Best Buy stores are dropping HD DVD from their shelves.
This development isn’t in every store, but Best Buy spokesman Brian Lucas confirmed that some stores are choosing to abandon the failed format. The chain has no official plans concerning HD DVD, so this decision is made on a store level.
â€œRight now theyâ€™re just being discounted, but some stores are pulling them off shelves, depending on their inventory,â€ the spokesman said to Home Media Magazine. Lucas went on to say Best Buy was “undecided” concerning unsold stock.
