Amazon Joins Blu-ray Bandwagon20 Feb, 2008 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Online retail behemoth Amazon.com said it would join other major retailers and begin showcasing Blu-ray hardware and software more prominently on its site.
Citing consumer preference, Peter Faricy, VP of music and movies, said Blu-ray movies accounted for 75% of Amazon's HD sales since January.
The move marks a swift turnaround for Amazon, which just last week said it would remain format agnostic.
Indeed, the retailer said it would continue carrying HD DVD players and movies.
