I'm a little confused. Does anyone know how they compare sales of Movies that haven't been released on Blu ray or HD dvd yet.

So if indeed the judge sales over pre orders on Amazaon....That would leave out all the HD dvd's purchased at Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.

How can they take such a small piece of the market....Online pre orders at Amazaon and then make it seem like that resembles the whole market? Wierd in my opinion. But if it makes blu ray adopters or supporters feel better. The last solid numbers I saw was HD dvd stand alones are outselling blu ray stand alones 4 to 1. And blu ray just hit the million total movies sold mark....While HD dvd is 2000 behind at 998,000 movis sold. Sure HD dvd had a couple months head start...But this format war is still in its infancy stage. There are regular DVD's that sell in the millions in ONE week. Yet the hundreds of HD dvd's and Blu rays released total a million or two. There is a long way to go in this format war.

I wouldn't take pre orders at amazon as some sort of gage to total sales. Every Tuesday when I go to Walmart and Bestbuy....There are people buying HD dvd's and or blu rays. Thats where I would believe the bulk of the sales are coming from. Not Amazon.

Could be preorders on Amazon.com but blu-ray is winning so doesn't matter all that much.

If you ever took AP Statistics (or a stats class in college) you'd know that a small percentage of total results are actually quite representative of the whole, with very little error involved. Even polls done with only a few thousand people can be representative of a million (give or take 1~3%).

I do find it humorous though that you think your local Walmart store is more representative of the HD Movie market than Amazon.com.

once the price of blu-ray is comparable with hd dvd, blu-ray will win
i think the main reason hd dvd is holding on is only because of its price

Russbomb3784d ago

techie3784d ago

Well since the price is similar for dvd and blu-ray (in the UK at least) then id buy blu-ray if i have an hdtv. But i don't really buy dvd's anyway...was buying VHS until last year ;)
