Throughout the fierce format war I decided not to upgrade for fear of picking the losing side. It turns out that I was right, as I was rooting for HD DVD. Luckily some of the early adopters will get their money back from Walmart.
Walmart has officially announced that they are offering full refunds to anyone that purchased an HD DVD player from them after 11/1/07. Of course you’re going to have to return the now (almost) useless player and present your receipt in order to get your cash. Kudos to Walmart for helping out those who picked the losing side.
