most people who shop at wal-mart can't even afford a TV that a HD DVD will look good on... so why do they need one?

Keywords: most of the people.

Besides, he is right. If you look at the range of consistent shoppers at Walmart, they tend to be of the lower income bracket which is why Target is whooping Walmart because Target's range of customers are more middle class and their products appeal to the middle class. That is why Walmart is trying to bring better, recognizable brands of clothes and electronics to their stores to attract those customers from Target.

i just find it funny that here in Australia there has been absolutely no advertisements on any Blu-ray/HD-DVD products. I personally am rooting for HD-DVD since the Matrix Trilogy will definately be released for HD-DVD :) that is my one and only reason for choosing HD-DVD over Blu-ray. I don't really care about which one is better, as long as it's better than DVDs.

Like I mentioned above, it doesn't matter whether you make a good living or not. The fact is Walmart is struggling to attract middle-class shoppers that spend more than their main customer base, which are the lower class. Therefore, what he mentioned was indeed correct and again, I will stress my point that he said most people that shop at Walmart and not all.

:yes:
How Wal-Mart's TV prices crushed rivals
If Wal-mart doesn't watch it, they are going to further widen the gap between lo-fi and hi-fi users. You can only low ball so much for so long.

Wow, it sounds like you guys dont want the prices to ever come down, which makes no sense at all. I take it you guys are against me using a coupon at the grocery store too.
