GameStop says goodbye to HD DVD photo



Destructoid has gotten word from an inside source (and confirmation - thanks Liqideos) that GameStop/EB Games will no longer be taking HD DVDs or Xbox 360 HD DVD players as of tomorrow.

Ever since Warner announced it was switching to Blu-ray exclusively, the bad news hasn't stopped piling on for the HD DVD camp. If any of you HD DVD owners out there are thinking about jumping ship, I suggest you do so immediately.

Otherwise, it'll be too late to flip your movie collection for a decent amount of money if you wait much longer. Alternatively, you could always hold on to your fully-functional, yet non-supported high-def movie and use it to upscale DVDs. I'm just saying.
