- Blockbuster will be stocking Blu-ray and not HD DVD in most of its stores
- Target will be selling Blu-ray models as its first high-def disc players starting this fall
- A special "Ultimate Edition" of Close Encounters of the Third Kind will be released by Steven Spielberg exclusively on Blu-ray
- BJ's Wholesale Club will stop selling HD DVD products in its stores
Even so, Hettrick has to admit that most of the attractive price slashing right now is happening on the HD DVD front.
