After Target and Blockbuster, another 3rd party retailer goes blu-ray exclusively
JULY 26 | East Coast chain BJís Wholesale Club will drop HD DVD from its shelves and carry the Blu-ray Disc format exclusively by the fourth quarter, according to sources at the retailer and several Hollywood studios.
Sources said the chain will carry Blu-ray exclusively at all its 170 stores, although it continues to carry both formats on its Web site.
A spokesperson for the chain didnít immediately return calls for comment.
BJís' move follows Target and Blockbuster, both of which have announced they will increase the presence and support of Blu-ray in stores. Both chains, however, will continue to carry HD DVD movies to some extent.

BJ's Wholesale Club stores to carry Blu-ray exclusively
Great news. (no, I'm kidding). It's good if both formats survive. Then the prizes for the customers will be cheaper.PS3 (PAL)
"Motorstorm", "Resistance: Fall of Man".
WOW seriously guys it's over... Target, Walmart, Blockbuster, and now BJ's now only selling Blu-Ray in the USA these are all in the top 10 retail stores.. Looks like they are lining up for the Holiday Season...
I have yet to hear of ONE store exclusively going HD-DVD... This war will be over in 2007...since they are just not selling..

Cool news though

Oh man, that Target announcement really got the ball rolling, didn't it? Universal Studios must be feeling some real pressure now.Thoroughly enjoying my PS+ membership.
It's looking like this format war will be won with or without the help of Universal Studios.
It's a shame that they are choosing to hold out and get forced into this.
