Due to the release of Spiderman 3, Blu-ray outsold HD-DVD in 71:29 ratio. Blu-ray also outsold HD-DVD in 64:36 ratio this year and Blu-ray now holds majority of HD media market with 61% since inception. Sales chart at page 4 Home Media Magazine
Wow, imagine if Transformers hadn't gone HD-DVD exclusives, the format war would have been over by now. And Ratatouille, Cars and Pirates of Caribbean 3 aren't even out.
I know im very curious to see how well Ratatouille and Cars will perform..POTC is a given best seller
A lot of these players are in Blu Ray homes. 90k hd dvd buyers sure left that so called movie selection on the shelf. PS3 40GB of HD perfection released only last Friday helped NA PS3 sales to 55k(vgchartz). To ps3limps below: Sony released the 40GB, spidey 3, Britney Spears, Backstreet, Ratchet Official week, Guitar Hero 3 (sold to 10% install base like MS, but Wii should have been 400k). And still beat hd dvd? Halo 3 proved that game sales effect entertainment sales of other media. Sony did good.
am gonna get ratouille cars and surfs up. then spider man 3 collection and then pirates of the carribean 3 cus i already have 1 and 2. As soon as i get some money:(
Wait ... I thought Ratatouille came out on nov 6th?
ya i was going to say i saw it 2 days ago
yes Ratatouille is out but we are talking about how well it sell..
You should really check out the Pixar short film collection. It is GREAT! My 2 yr old and I had a blast watching them before bedtime.
Over 130 tittles, get it while its hot !
Danja - I was talking to MK_RED - "And Ratatouille, Cars and Pirates of Caribbean 3 aren't even out."
Waiting for this week's results because I think Ratatouille, Cars, etc will probably propel it higher than Spidey 3. http://www.eproductwars.com...
I see them ranked really high on Amazon when I went online to buy the Pixar Short Films collection, an absolute work of genius. You just have to get all these BD movies from Disney this holiday, they are just that good.
I expected both to really do well but combined boxset and Spidey 3 BD had a combined sale amount of 130k. Ratatouille should do better. Cars will be up there as well but I'm not sure about both. Something tells me the demographic these 2 films go for are not the buyers market. I already know a few dads who are buying only the SD DVD copy due to their kids rooms having only a DVD player
I agreed. Toshiba bought over Paramount will be an excellent move for them to stay alive.
good for blu with the onslaught of great movies coming soon, blu should end the war and declare peace in the cosmos.
is this before the players went went down to $100??
same period as the $100 HD-DVD player.
It was only about 100,000 units and the sales done now unless they plan on giving even more players away I doubt its going to turn the tide.
I think they did it to counter Pixar's releases but Pixar is pounding the sales charts right now.
but majority of those players were sold to Walmart... Guess who DOESN'T report to Nielson's numbers and why Nielson's data is being heavily scrutinized for not including the store ;)
But sadly PS3 is not. Anyway what did you guys think of Uncharted? It wasn't perfect, the controls take a little getting use to. The camera wasn't always 100% perfect. That's all the bad news I can say about the game It was awesome to me. It burrows a lot from Gears of War as far as controlling but it feels faster and not as bulky and it has more exploration. PS3's best exclusive game so far. It's gonna be rated M right? Too much blood and cuss words. Actually surprised me. The thing that most impressed me was the AI. I didn't expect that to feel so lively.
Dude STFU..which game have ever played which didn't take you lil while to get use to control first time playing it..and the camera is perfect I didn't experience no such probs.....what did it borrow form Gears..the cover system..? plz gears copied Killswitch then...cuss words...I guess you played the entire game huh...Douche..!!
Off topic (apart from 1st sentence)
I'm not talking bad about the game, that was my honest impression. It's not perfect, it won't be a 10. To me it's a 9.5 from the demo. The girl on the plane says "what the F*ck was that" And there's blood all over when you kill guys. It's more Mature than I thought, that's a good thing.
i don't always agree with you alot of the time, but i do listen to you when you have something good to say, but i can completely understand why no one takes you seriously. i really think you cry wolf to much. @6.1 dude calm down.
i thought the controls were great. i loved how you could tap the stick while on cover to change which direction you lean out and fire.
if not then at least for ps3!! its a new IP, new game play, new graphics,new effect, this is the new next gen game!!
Yes, you are managing to divert from the topic of Sony winning the format war by saying that its still losing the console war. Every praise you gave to Uncharted was accompanied by some criticism regarding originality or mechanics. There is no way you played anything except the demo and I doubt it was on your own PS3, so I don't know why you are talking like this about a game none of us have tried (there is a reason why reviewers don't just play demos and use that experience to give scores to the full game). You don't see me doing this to Mass Effect or Ace Combat 6.
Uncharted smashed all my expectations. I got got the every headshot task now. It's an amazing game. Gameplay, control.. camera. Everything was flawless for me. I urge you to crank your sharpness down to about -10 and your brightness up to about 50, contrast down to about 40 and sit back and enjoy the most incredible next-gen game ever!
Not to be a jerk, or play the role of a modorator. Could we try to keep it on subject? BluRay vs HD-DVD does not have much to do with Uncharted Demo. On Topic: These numbers are pretty impressive. I am interested in seeing what happens when the next blockbuster is released on dual media's. That should give us a better idea of what the $99 HD-DVD unit has done for the format war.
Oh, and by the way... Good for Blu-ray. The this weeks releases are even more stellar, if you ask me. I'm buying like 2 blu-ray a week since about October 16th. It's crazy... I've got over 500 dvd's and now I'm tossing them out for blu-ray duplicates. "ha" Go RAY!!!
I don't review the same. To me concept has a lot to do. Rathcet & Clank to me is about a 7/10. Because it's a a great game but it's also a cute platformer more for kids on a hardcore gamers console. But not Uncharted, I give that more like a 9/10. I can't give it a 10/10 because it's not Final Fantasy or Grand Theft Auto.
AKA: Lightning did you played the entire game? i though so also how can you be a ps3 fan and have a username of PS3 Limps on and on FAKEBOY? Blue -ray nice sales numbers
