Woolworth dumps HD-DVD

Lesser of two evils

The UK retailer Woolworths has dumped HD-DVD in favour of Blu-ray.

Apparently sales of both formats have been practically non-existent, but because Blu-ray has been installed on the PS3, executives think that it might have a better future.

A spokesman said that the two formats had been trailed in the flagship stores. Blu-ray had a slight increase in sales and only it will make it into the medium sized stores.

Many are expecting HD-DVD sales to pick up around Christmas.  The format has been doing better in the EU than it has in the US.
