We're not exactly sure what to make of this just yet -- after all, it seems that this news would've circled the world ten times over by now if there were any substance to it -- but according to Stephen Pope, chief global market strategist at Cantor Fitzgerald Europe, Wal-Mart could be kicking HD DVD players to the e-curb. More specifically, he outrightly claims that Wally World has said that "physically, in its stores, it will only sell Blu-ray players," though HD DVD players would be made available through its website. Obviously, we've seen no official word one way or another from Wal-Mart about this proclamation, but it is a curious assertion to make without any underlying knowledge. We'll keep you posted -- if there's anything to keep you posted about, that is. Hit the read link for the video proof, it's right around the 1:09 mark.

Update: Reader Dave reckons the fellow misspoke and meant to say "Target." Sounds quite likely, actually.
