Did they drop price of HD-DVD in Europe as well?

As far as I know they didn't. There are only two players out here at the moment and finding a place selling them is difficult. The price is still the same

I think they are focusing in the US hoping the others will fall if they win.

I think you commented on the wrong story, Peg. I saw your exact same reply on the other format war story that you posted.

"the European HD DVD Promotional Group has refused to reveal how many HD DVD players have been sold in Europe"

This is just a hunch, but it's possible, just possible that HD-DVD player sales in europe are pretty crap compared to Blu-ray. And we all know that blu-ray disc sales are mopping the floor with HD-DVD

The HD DVD Promotional Group is a complete joke though. When they show Bluray player sales, they don't include the ps3 because 'it's not a true bluray player' which in turn makes HD-DVD look better. However when they show the attach rate for Bluray players, they include the ps3 because that lowers blurays attach rate per unit, which in turn makes HD-DVD look better. The fools!

But at least this article shows that even they know when to, you know, just shut up

They don't want to tell people how many HD-DVD player has been sold.

Meaning They could have sold 50 and of those 50 players. at least 3-4 HD-DVD movies have been sold with it making the rate look big. I see what they are doing lawlz.
