EveryNickIsTaken writes: Blockbuster announced today that for future HD releases they will only be offering Blu-Ray rentals. Existing stocks of HD DVD rentals will still be offered, but no new discs will be available.
Blockbuster has been renting both Blu-ray and HD DVD titles in 250 stores since late last year and found that consumers were choosing Blu-ray titles more than 70 percent of the time. "The consumers are sending us a message. I can't ignore what I'm seeing," Matthew Smith, senior vice president of merchandising at Blockbuster, told The Associated Press.
