Blu-Ray Shot Across the Bow

The Blu-Ray / HD war continues with HD getting another blow from a big retailer. 

Woolworth’s has decided to pull its support for HD-DVD and will no longer stock videos that feature the  high-definition DVD format.

Woolworth’s, a U.K. based retailer made the decision based on the strength of sales of Blu-ray DVDs during the holiday shopping season. During that time, discs that used the Blu-Ray format outsold HD DVDs by a 10-to-1 margin.
It is believed the primary reason why Blu-ray outsold HD DVD is because Sony PlayStation 3 devices play Blu-ray discs.

Based on the sales figures, it clearly shows that the market is moving toward one format of high-definition DVD.

The war is not over yet, but it looks like it is coming to a close. The deciding factor will be how much money Toshiba is willing to bleed before they give up a losing battle.
