That being said, after the Warner announcement which essentially decided the format war, I would say that all the retailers are or will be on a track in the direction of total Blu – esp. as preparation time for next Holiday season begins. They did not like the format war to begin with and they do not like the after-effects because it confuses consumers…….and takes up shelf space.

Currently, I would say that BestBuy is on the fastest track toward eventual total Blu enlightenment to its customers.
When you say "fast track" does that mean that they will sell through their current inventory and just not order more? Or will they just cut back on HD DVD sku's that they stock regularly?
