HD DVD Also Falling in Europe

Illustration for article titled HD DVD Also Falling in Europe

After outselling HD DVD 10 to 1, one of the UK's major retailers has decided to go all Blu-ray and eliminate the sadly ill-fated format from their stores this March. With HD DVD's lousy sales and Blu-ray numbers increasing about 40% every month, Woolworths say it's over. According to them: "Sales figures clearly show that the market is moving towards one format of high definition DVD. The main reason is the success of Sony's PlayStation 3."
