Even when you go to Best Buy, it seems half the people don't know what you are buying when you bring up an HD DVD or Blu-ray. Plus I hear more misinformation being spread there than anywhere else. At least at Wal-Mart and Target they don't know anything.
I will say this Patsfan123...Walmart does have great prices on bd and hd dvd. BB and CC do spread alot of misinformation as well. Not all Walmarts are bad I realize but the people that work at mine either dont care what your looking for or dont know.

through the humanity to find what you want inside, wait in line to get
checked out, through more cars, all the way back to where you parked,
and for what? Something you bought was $14.87 instead of $14.99? Ugh.
What do you mean? that's the fun part.

Future Shop and Best Buy are the best, they have low prices and every new release
Best Buy is definitely more expensive than Wal-Mart
300 Wal mart $23 Best Buy $30
usual suspects Walmart $27 bestbuy $35
but since walmart has terrible stock thank god for pricecheck

Simple fact of the matter is... If you worked at Wal-Mart, then you should know how ignorant people in the electronics section are.

Secondly, if you are on this forum, you do not fall into the common place intellegence.

Maybe it's because they didn't understand what you were saying because of the mis-spellings. I kid, I kid.

My store had neither version HD or BR. Which surprised me since this is probably the biggest summer dvd release this year.

That just blows my mind. If I was Wal*mart I probably would have ordered 0
copies since it just seems like trailer trash with little or no money is the
vast, vast majority of its customers, and they'd never own a HDTV or a Blu-Ray player.
im with this guy lol
