A new ad in Home Media Magazine says "7 out of 10 hi-def movies sold Thanksgiving week were Blu-ray.

It may be a dirty tactic but it needed to be done. Anything to end this war faster.

Needed, and fairly well done. Simply facts, followed by a good motto "The Future is Blu." Not genius but simple, and clever.

No, it doesnt need to be done. This is why i hate the Blu-ray association and Apple. They both attack their opposition. Microsoft may do it, but not on commercials or advertisements.

And Grassroots - how do you know this is simply fact? Do you have the sales figures? I sure as hell dont.

Where is the insult?? Its nothing but facts written down about blu-ray sales..Business is always rough got to step on your opponent to get to the top..and there is no lies in the advertisement.

At the rate that high-def media is selling, Blu-ray LITERALLY sold 7 out of 10 high-def titles.:)

That ad owns. Possibly the best ad I've ever seen. Plain, simple and in your face.

The ad is concise and direct to the point. Kudos to whoever thought about it.

A little desperate since the real "war" hasn't begun yet. The casual movie watcher hasn't raised their voice yet.

You got a disagree for saying the truth. Silly lemmings =')

Casual Crowd...??..umm are you talkng about ppl who like popcorn blockbusters...?..if so Blu Ray has all the best movies...Disney ,Fox..Sony..MGM..and we get all the horror movies..Lions which will the "Casual Crowd" choose..?

P.S: Warner Brothers will eventually join the Blu side...RED IS DEAD..!

You use the word desperate when the losing opponent tries silly marketing techniques like giving away movie player for free in order to gain some of the continuously losing market share. However, this article states the opposite, Blue ray is the format that has the upper hand.. Another thing, every time a company starts a new marketing technique or ad campaign some people on this site say its desperate. C'mon. This is marketing 101 you guys should know that, you don't even have to be in college to know this kind of stuff...!!!! And for the guy who said Blue ray is desperate: here is a advice, take that HD DVD player back to walmart, tell them you lost the reciept they might take it back from you.

Why would anyone return a perfectly good machine? So they could spend an extra $200 to get into a different format that still may loose or at least just coexist in the end?

No Blu Ray is telling the COLD HARD TRUTH. That they have WAY to big of a lead in the world and will win. Buy Blu Ray. HD DVD is only prolonging this mini battle.

Bluray is the only choice.My collection is growing quick this past month.
