    BJ's Wholesale Club stores to carry Blu-ray exclusively

    After Target and Blockbuster, another 3rd party retailer goes blu-ray exclusively

    http://www.videobusiness.com/article/CA6463556.html

    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.

    Great news. (no, I'm kidding). It's good if both formats survive. Then the prizes for the customers will be cheaper.

    Oh man, that Target announcement really got the ball rolling, didn't it? Universal Studios must be feeling some real pressure now.

    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.
