As has been stated elsewhere, Toshiba still has a warehouse or two full of these players, as well as budget dollars set aside for advertising this quarter. They're trying to get rid of them before they take an even bigger bath.
I'm sure the stores, both large and small, are also wanting to sell them off.
Robert, from a sellers perspective, if you order 10 HD-DVD player from Toshiba, and you can't sell them, does Toshiba credit you on a return to them? Or are you stuck with them?
I've always wondered what happened to the smaller retailers in that regard.
