Will Wal-Mart End the HD Format Wars?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  April 20, 2007


According to a recent post over on AVS Forum, Wal-Mart is reportedly working with Taiwanese manufacturer Fuh Yuan to crank out HD DVD players for a wholesale cost of just $50 per unit, based on an initial commitment of 2 million players. For those of you who flunked math, that’s a $100 million dollar bet that Wal-Mart is making on the HD DVD format.

If this really comes to fruition, the retail giant could be the one to make the difference in the high-definition format wars. With their purchasing muscle, cranking out millions of players that cost this little could retail in the $100 to $200 range, which could be a huge blow to the Blu-ray camp.
