Retailers Put Down Crackpipe, National Nightmare At An End

It’s raining Toshiba executives, because they’re all jumping out of windows! This past week, Netflix, Best Buy and retail giant Wal-Mart announced that they would either be focusing strongly on pushing Blu-Ray, or dropping HD-DVD from their shelves entirely. Now, Toshiba is expected to announce that they are giving up on the format entirely. What does this mean? It means that this format war BS is finally over! Of course, Netflix and Best Buy helped push things along after Warner Bros. announced they would be supporting the Blu-Ray format exclusively, but I think it was Wal-Mart that really pushed things over the edge. We all know that if Wal-Mart came out and said they were dropping their support for water, people would stop drinking it, and then the oceans would go out of business, right along with Toshiba. But that makes no sense. Anyway, if any of you were looking for an excuse to replace your already expensive DVD collections with even more expensive next generation format discs, it’s your lucky day. $35 for Waterworld? Bingo!
