I was thinking that we should have a thread where people can post the Wal-Mart locations they have been able to purchase HD-DVD's and what kind of selection and pricing they are finding. Since it is very hit and miss, I thought this might be a good thread. If we need to merge this with another thread, then please go ahead and do it.

Here is what I have so far:

1. Ft Wright, KY - most WB titles & Paramount titles. The combo discs were priced $29.99 and the rest were $19.99.

2. London, KY - same as above

3. Knoxville, KY(Parkside Dr.) - several slots setup, but only a few in stock.

4. Atlanta(Duluth), GA (Pleasant Hill Rd.) - on the video game endcap locked up and it was hard to tell what they had.

I will post more if I can find them.

QUICK NOTE: All these locations had plenty of BD in stock, and it appeared that they were not selling well.

Pickerington, OH.

Across from BB, staggering (OK an exaggeration) in that i counted 40 plus titles minus 5-6 that were out of stock.

That was in late July, and they did not have any player in stock.

Nashville area:

1. Antioch - Most titles in stock, but running low: most are $19.99. BD is there, but not selling. No players.

2. Nolensville - A few titles in stock, also running low, practically all are $19.99. BD also, also not selling. No players.

I'm sure there are others, but I haven't gotten to them yet.

San Leandro, Cal. is the only S.F. Bay Area store I have found that carries them. (Pleasanton, Livermore, Union City, Fremont, Milpitas do not, so far.)

Coach-

I recommend that if you have the time, continually update your first post in this topic to include the stores people have found, alphabetically by state then city. Thanks for starting this topic.

That is a great idea Chris, I will update my post with the store listings by state. Now with my work and coaching schedule, it might take me a couple of days to update things....

I am hoping we can get everybody a title or two via Wal-Mart!

Bel Air, MD. RCA HD DVD players & HD DVD discs. Few BR discs.
Towson, MD. Toshiba HD DVD players & both HD DVD & BR discs.

They're the only one in MD that I can find with HD DVD, even players instock. (No for Eldersburg, Arundle Mills, Westminster, Laurel, Columbia, Ellicott City, Catonsville, Aberdeen, and Vineland NJ). Cheap prices $20 for everything, except Rumor Has It.

-John

UPDATE: 8/13 Added Towson. Large selection of BR here, as well as the Toshiba HD-D1 player $498. They also have a demo unit playing Apollo 13.

Urbana, IL and Savoy, IL both have excellent selections of HD-DVD, just don't expect new releases on new release day; wait a week or two. Hybrids are $29.99, all others are $19.96.

No idea about the Champaign, IL store.

They certainly don't have the best selection, but they actually have some of the newer Paramount titles. Every disc they have is priced at $19.99 (excluding the combos of course). They're section looks like it's expanding each week.

1) Central Park - Store #1833 : NONE!!! (i tracked down the person who is responsible for all dvds, etc, and asked him where the HD titles were... his response: "Nope! They made us send 'em back!" i thought people were making that up, but apparently, it is true at some Wal-Marts...)

2) Rte 3 East - Store #2520 (Washington Plaza - heading towards King George) : no HD-DVD titles, and 4-5 Blu-Ray titles...

3) SouthPoint II - Store #5343 (Massaponax) : Jackpot... 20-30 HD-DVD titles all priced ~$20 for non-combos, and ~10 Blu-Ray titles all around $25...

hope this helps...

Russellville, Arkansas. Nice selection but they seem to get them late. Usually about a week after release. Most are 19.96 (except for the hybrids and a few others). They also carry the RCA players. They also have quite a selection of Blu-Ray for anyone that is interested. They actually have a better selection of Blu-Ray because they are not selling.

Most HD DVD titles are $19.96 (except for the combos). They usually lag a week or so after release date before actually getting them in.

No players yet


That's the only one I know of in Utah that carries HD DVD software

It isn't the size of the disk that counts, but how you use it.

The only Wal Mart in Orange County that I believe carries them is in Westminster, CA.
No players at the moment, but here's what I spotted. There are placeholders for just about almost every Hd movie released so far, even one for Troy. Unfortunately, there were only about 10 titles available, including: Pitch Black, Four Brothers, We Were Soldiers, Tomb Raider, The Manchurian Candidate, Friday Night Lights, Sahara, Sleepy Hollow, and Happy Gilmore and The Rundown on a seperate shelf. They must be selling well as all the WB titles that were there berfore were missing.

Southern California (L.A.) area:

I've seen HDDVD's at the Walmarts at Porter Ranch and in Valencia. The Porter Ranch Walmart has the RCA player on display.

As of a month ago, the Walmart in West Hills did not have any HDDVD's.

The Oxnard, CA location usually has a limited selection of titles due to high sales. I haven't seen any new titles from the past month though (e.g no Paramount titles whatsoever). Almost all of them (except the combos) are $19.99. They also seem to get new RCA players in stock every several weeks, but they sell quickly.
Needless to say, the Blu-ray titles are always fully stocked.
