Sync'd HD-DVD Purchase by Fanboys Spike Amazon Rank, Blu-Rayers Set To Retaliate

This morning, Gizmodo wrote about a stat that Europe's HD-DVD title sales had spiked and surpassed Blu-ray sales. That's wrong. That writer actually used US data, so they updated their post. But what about that US spike? It didn't have anything to do, actually, with the fact that HD-DVD has over 100k non-Xbox players in the field. That would have revealed itself with a more gradual climb in the charts.

Apparently, the spike occurs the same day that HD-DVD fanboys at AVSForum, the AV enthusiast site, had organized an mass buy of HD-DVD titles. For an immature format, even a few individuals can make a difference, if only on a day.

you never heard of the huge war between the touch-tones and the rotary dialers? the touch-tones ended up winning because the rotary dialers took longer to call for back-up.

hehe funny.

These guys are really stupid though. What's going to happen now is a huge drop in sales lol.

Im just glad all that "HDDVD comeback" nonsense is over. Perhaps now we can move on.

Sorry HDDVD fanboys, your scheme failed horribly, as did your format

I really did laugh out loud when I read this. I'm not anti any format, but format-fanboys? LOL!
