Wal-Mart orders 2 million HD DVD players


Sony gets hit on two fronts. First, this piece from Video Business on high definition DVD:

APRIL 20 | Wal-Mart apparently has ordered 2 million HD DVD players from China to sell at a target price of $299, according to a report out of Taiwan.

The introduction of low-priced Chinese-manufactured DVD players in Wal-Mart and other outlets in the U.S. helped spur the growth of the DVD format in its early years.

A translation of the story was uploaded on the AVS Forum.

And this one from Variety on next-generation video game consoles:

[Nintendo’s] Wii led among the next-gen crowd with North American consumers buying [in March 2007] 259,000 units, followed by Xbox 360 (199,000) and PS3 (130,000).
