While news was running rampant last week about Circuit City's inexplicable price cuts on some of the more popular HD DVD players, we had a hunch it wasn't exactly a sign of disownment. Sure enough, it's now being reported that a Circuit City representative has informed Punch Jump
that the clearance prices were "inadvertent." To be fair, we're a bit hesitant to believe that's
entirely factual, either, but nevertheless, the same rep also mentioned that HD DVD sales have been "strong" and that the big box retailer would remain "platform agnostic" for the time being.
