Wal-Mart to give more shelf space to Blu-ray, takes it away from CDs

Sharp unveils LCD panel with integrated memory function

Wal-Mart is shoving CDs out of the way of Blu-ray movie titles as CD sales drop 23% over the first weeks of the holiday shopping season. Blu-ray movies however, might just be a hot ticket item as HDTVs are the only TVs you can buy now and some folks wanna hang on to physical media in their treasured collections. Plus, everyone from tweens to Generation X 35-year olds download music, legally or otherwise, now. I can’t tell you the last CD I purchased, but I did buy the Iron Man Blu-ray release and plan on purchasing The Dark Knight so maybe Wal-Mart is on to something here.
