Spider-man 3 Sells 130K in Six Days on Blu-ray

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has revealed that the Blu-ray release of 'Spider-man 3' sold 130,000 copies the first six days at retail, 15,000 more copies than the Transformers HD DVD was reported to have sold its first week on store shelves. Having shipped 400,000 copies to retailers, this represents a 30% sell-off for the title.

David Bishop, President of Sony commented, "We are well-placed for the holidays. We got in before the key shopping season, and now you'll have more people getting into the market, as new players are launching from Sony, Sharp, Panasonic [among others]. It's our hope that they walk out with a player and Spider-Man 3."

The 130,000 sold does not include copies given away as part of a Sony promotion to provide the title to those who purchase a 40GB PS3. Sony expects demand to increase throughout the holiday season, with 'Spider-man 3' to remain a top seller.

The story is too old to be commented.

Considering there are over 6 million BD players and probably 3million in N. America 130,000 is not great.. Comparing the two Blu Ray player including the PS3 outnumber hd dvd player 6:1.. With that in mind Spider Man 3 was only able to sell 15,000 more than transformers when HD DVD has so much less players out.. Again this proves what the backers of HD DVD has been saying all along.. People would rather buy a stand alone player than having a gaming machine like the PS3 as their main DVD players.. So probably more than half of the PS3 owners out there don't use it for Blu Ray ...

Now if Parmount waited to release Transformers after the $99 A2 sales i'm pretty sure there would no way Spider Man would've sold more.. But hey we have Shrek 3 coming out pretty soon on HD DVD only.. Let's see how many of those sell with 100,000+ more HD DVD owners including myself since Transformers came out!

so 250 odd isnt bad . As shmee said and we know HD DVD int a factor in those regions. so 115 k is the total sales for HD DVD transformers on its launch week. compared to 250k on its launch week.

so a sales comparison is not valid.

I agree with u SHMEEE BHAI ratatouille might be a much bigger hit than Spiderman 3 and so could be cars . we wait for the numbers though

ravinash3548d ago

plus not everyone who owns a PS3 or Blueray play wants this film.
I watch it was it was in the theatre and didn't like it at all.
But I am glad its doing well as i want BlueRay to win.

rotten tomato score: 97 metacritic: 96

jiggyjay3547d ago

Yeah I got owned!

Any of you guys have links that claim that Spiderman sold 100k in japan and europe.. There's no way you guys can spin this.. The fact that Blu Ray only outsells HD DVD in software 2:1 when Blu Ray players outnumber HD DVD players 6:1 is bad for Blu Ray! If All PS3 owners bought blu ray movies then this war would've ended already. Believe me if the Sony can match HD DVD price and if Blu Ray software was outselling HD DVD by at least 5:1 then this war would have been over already! But its a good thing that Blu Ray hasn't won yet because there would've been no way I would be able to buy a $99 HD DVD player and watch transformers in HD without having to spend $400 on a Blu Ray player! I believe that HD DVD will end up being the winner in this because of price alone! Just like the VHS vs Beta war one of the main factors for VHS winning (other than porn supporting it)was that VHS was cheaper than Beta even though beta was higher quality!

ruibing3548d ago

So many awesome trilogies and releases. I didn't catch it in theaters but I'm getting the BD release. This is a good day for all Blu Ray owners.

uxo223547d ago

hmmm. Who does that, people use 5 day weeks and 7 day weeks. But I never hear of six days. Was it not winning after 5 days or 7 days. Just curious why the did the numbers after six days.

Jdash243548d ago

i was going to pick it up......til i saw the price tag ($40)........and i saw the trilogy was only $65 dollars.......but im going to wait a while and pick up the trilogy

THE_JUDGE3547d ago

I was going to the trilogy but I had some unforseen money issues so I plan on asking for it for Christmas, thats as good as mine. Go Blu!

TRANSFORMERS WAS A BETTER MOVIE THAN SPIDERMAN3
I WILL ADMIT 2 THAT

shmee3548d ago

tRNASFORMERS IS ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES EVER MADE. it HAS NOTHING,NO STORY EXCEPT SOME CRAZY TRON FIGHTS

spidey AND pirates 3 HAVE BOTH REACHED THE 900M SALES MARK. NO pramount MOVIE WOULD EVER ACHIEVE THAT MARK.

EXPECT rATATOUILLE , CARS AND PIRATES 3 TO BE EVEN BIGGER SELLING HITS

UNFORTUNATELY FOR HD DVD ---IT IS NON EXISTENT IN JAPAN AND EU

Baba19063548d ago

spider 3 sucked =( sorry i love ps3 and so on but transformers was much better

Daurelus173547d ago

there is not doubt that transformers was better.. spiderman 3 still a good movie but a complete let down of what i hoped it to be

solidt123548d ago

Sweet. I might pick it up.

Xi3548d ago

if you want to watch spider man, just go on youtube and type emo, at least it's less gay.
