Wal-Mart killed HD DVD. No, really...

Wal-Mart announced that they were going to exclusively back Blu-Ray. Check out the article. They are totally eliminating HD DVD hardware and software, which means that $100 HD DVD you bought there as a bargain will become an upconvert player.

While I'm not surprised by Wal-Mart jumping into the Blu-Ray camp, I am surprised at their plan to entirely eliminate HD DVD. It seems they would have kept it around for a couple of years as a "low cost" option. I guess the margin really has been stomped out of that product.
