Sony's bullish Blu-ray claims rejected by HD DVD camp

Current.com.au, Sydney - Matthew Henry, 5 December 2007:

Sony today claimed its Blu-ray Disc format holds 95 per cent market share in high definition hardware and software sales in Australia, but the company's claims have been rejected by the HD DVD Consortium for choosing its figures selectively.

The HD DVD Consortium said the data is misleading because it relies solely on the month of October, "The high definition market share report referred to this morning has been commissioned specifically by Sony and contains information based on the month of October... We have access to other GfK reports showing software percentages on a year-to-date basis with Blu-ray at 86 per cent and HD DVD at 14 per cent."

they are fighting for 9% extra but it doesnt change the fact that their format is getting @$$ kicked!

I agree. 14% seems really stupid, but it is alot considering that the sales for HD films have been low, but I still think that HD DVD is a dead technology. Hopefully when this paramount deal terminates they will go Blu and the battle will be over.
