Buy an HD DVD Player at Best Buy?

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) -- Electronics retailer Best Buy Co. said Wednesday it will give gift cards to customers that bought HD-DVD players or HD-DVD attachments from its U.S. stores as the format goes away in favor of the Blu-ray standard.
Toshiba conceded the market to Blu-Ray and announced they were stopping production on HD-DVD players.
The products had to be purchased at one of the company's stores prior to Feb. 23. Best Buy said it will give a $50 gift card for each item, which will likely lead to the distribution of more than $10 million in U.S. gift cards.
