HA. Kill this!!! Stupid article. What does it prove, could somebody tell me?

The precedent has already been set. HD format news pieces (and even these piddly movie release announcements) are apparently of interest here.

There's a Tech section, and there are individual console sections. If these articles make you uncomfortable, I suggest you stick to just the PS3/360/Wii sections and just bypass the homepage and Tech section altogether.

Besides more movies are the basic reason the consumer walks in a store and buys movies for one format to another. What makes you think BD is chosen just becuase its BR, BD has the software lead because of the software.

Doesn't really prove anything its not a trend of more HD-DVD every month and HD-DVD will be lucky if it causes a spike that put sales over BD for a short time but is is news and a possible push to level the ground(supposed software push by HD-DVD in the coming months).

Year to date it is 99 to 132 in favor of BD...

and...a much larger percentage of the HD DVD released in the last quarter were Universal back catalog (ie not big sellers) vs BD which had a much greater percentage of new movies released.

and...the Universal 'titles' included such 'movies' as
04/24 Antarctica Dreaming
04/24 Digital Video Essentials
06/05 HD Window Hawaii
06/05 HD Window Great SW
06/05 Serenity Southern Seas
06/05 Visions of the Sea
06/19 Uncommon Bach
06/26 Freedom: Vol 1

BD didn't fill thier list with junk like that (though some of the movies were still crap!)...

Anyway...I don't own either and won't until there is a winner so spin away Next Gen Optical Disc Fanboys...spin away.

Pretty tired of these VS news. We all know DVD is winning hands down. Things don't change in a couple of articles.
