Walmart Ups Blu-ray Share
Walmart has upped its Blu-ray profile to the point that it has caught up to Best Buy in market share for the techology. That's according to NPD Group figures, as cited by Home Media Magazine.
An NPD analyst told the magazine that the two retail giants are "neck and neck" in Blu-ray market share, both with percentages in the high 20s. Walmart reached that point through both emphasis of the technology and significant cost-cutting.
