It simply comes down to movies. Blu-Ray has more movies that I actually want to see in hi-def.

I reported this story as false.

The headline & story are misleading; there is no mention that the data is only from one store.

NPD, which tracks all stores, shows last week: BD-54% HD DVD-46% and HD DVD has been averaging above 40% for the last 5 weeks.

Let just change the title to "Despite outsold by Blu-ray, HD-DVD still won", just to please cdzie1.

AdolfBinBush4079d ago

this story is 100% false, earlier i found a few websites which say just the opposite.

Sashy4079d ago

know if the lord of the ring trilogi is coming for blu-ray?

Blood_Spiller4079d ago (Edited 4079d ago )

I read a while back that it was, let me see if I can find a link.

Yep here it is:
"The Lord of the Rings Trilogy will be released on both Blu-ray and HD-DVD on November 23, 2007.

As a gesture of good faith over the Matrix release, New Line/WB will be releasing only the Extended Editions on Blu-ray at this time, while HD-DVD will get only the Theatrical Versions.

The Blu-ray version will be on a BD50 in VC-1 with PCM. It will also showcase a lot of the neat features of BD-J."

that would be so cool. im also waiting for x-man collection. hope they make that.

THE_JUDGE4079d ago

Sorry to tell you but New Line has no plans to release any of the LOTR trilogy in any HD format quite yet. As you should know they are still currently in a legal battle with writer/director Peter Jackson about the money he and his company aren't receiving from the success of the film. Until 08 and prolly the end of the legal proceedings no HD format will see any the films released. BTW New Line is format neutral but has shown favor to Blu-ray on more than one occasion.
