Blockbuster closes the door on HD-DVD in favor of BluRay

Blockbuster video rental stores have decided to only carry BluRay hidef DVDs based on the rental volumes they have seen at 250 of their stores involved in a trial carrying both HD formats.

This may be a nail in the coffin for HD-DVD and is the first time so far that a major retailer has picked one format exclusively in favor of the other. BluRay has significantly more hardware in people’s homes already due to the BluRay player being included as part of the PS3.
