Blockbuster Backs Blu-ray

You read it here first, when I predicted that Blu-ray would, hands down, beat HD DVD in the new HD format war. Apparently, Blockbuster agrees. The movie rental giant announced the company has chosen Blu-ray as the official HD format for its stores and all 1,700 of its corporate-owned stores will stock Blu-ray titles by mid-July.

It’s actually good that a company as large as Blockbuster finally made a decision, and a decision so big that it could impact the final outcome of which format will be the ultimate winner. And of course, I think they made the right decision.
