Net HD DVD sales, according to Nielsen, constituted only 15% of hi-def disc sales last week. And the top HD DVD seller, The Kingdom, sold just 10% as many copies as the top Blu-ray Disc release, 3:10 to Yuma.
WOW!!! by LOTR triology it will be 99:1!
after LOTR.. 99:1 ? are u sure about 1 percent for HD DVD ? IMO it will be sth like "100:nothin here to compare"
What is that like 5.66 to 1? I wonder how it's doing Europe and Japan.
can't wait to see star wars on blu ray
wtf!! i thought it would be 75/25 or something
Major @ss kicking and another nail to the coffin. It's all lightning fault, because he traded his PS3 for a XBOX 360. also partly ITR and cdzie1 fault, they failed to convince consumer and warner about how good HD-DVD is.
I have been on this wbesite for a long time. but who is ITR
you aren't here that long dude.
That actually provided good arguments. He really tried to hold in his love for HD-DVD but every once in a while it would show only because he thought it was a better product.
I thought Blu would reach that ratio in a couple of months. Never did i epect that to happen so soon
85+15=99... ther will always be somone who will bye HD DVD when its still losing by that much
However many stores could dupe the senior citizens
This is the intelligent of an average XBOX User.
360 into this? Sony with it's BR trojan horse in the PS3 gave them this lead. If MS had launched with HD-DVD internal it would of been a whole different story. And the "elderly" are buying DVD which is still giving Blu-ray the asswhooping of it's life. You Sony lot are some serious insecure butthurt groupies but I can understand when you are like the dog everyone enjoys to kick. Enjoy your first place Blu-ray movie sales on your game machine, while you sit in last place in the HD console war. Well you can always play Gears of Duderaider
ROFL Hey look inyourmom talking about insecure. That's really funny
Inyourmom, you forgot, HD-DVD can't store games, Blu can.
InYourMom, what does Uncharted have to do with this topic? Gears of War's gameplay mechanics aren't even all that original. Killswitch and Winback had the cover system well before GeOW.
VirusE won't like this news. OR my post. >_<
You are right this news enrages me. Not only does it enrage me but it is a disgrace to my existence. I hate my bluray player and the money I have invested in bluray disc and prefer the dying format that I do not own.
lol, wonder why he picked ur name virus.
Now they can finally start promoting a single hi def disc to replace the DVD. One single format means that those movie companies will SLOWLY start to move away from DVD and on to blu. My prediction is that w/in 5 years DVD's will no longer be used for movies.
Blu ray is getting even more sales. Wont be long now.
close that coffin PLEASE toshiba! It's really starting to stink! I am sure hd dvd player sales did the funky-why-toosee as well. (don't ask LOL)
So, why not move on to Blu.... The other night, Blockbuster had just put up a 40' Sony Bravia in their store with the PS3 playing Fantastic Four 2 movie....So,my point is, they're really moving on to Blu! So, should others too.
it was fortold that 2008 will be the downcoming of microsoft and the uprising of sony and PS3! THE PROFISY IS BEING FO-FILLED
HD DVD camp just just give up already it is over!
Cool news. Plus, 3:10 to Yuma is AWESOME.
it was awesome.. and I love christian bale .. his performance is really impressive. . cant wait to see his METAL GEAR film ..
I LOVED that movie :D
Last week it was 65:35 so a significant increase! Also 85:15 was bang on my prediction so i'm chuffed about that :)
The Blu Ray sales have remained the same but the HD DVD has just subsided. I expect a slight increase in lead next week
I like the way they always use the ratios system and never talk about sales numbers. I bet it was 850 blu rays sold and 150 hddvd.
