lol, you beat me to it...
br fans that's laughing might not be laughing next year.people that bought the stand alone hd dvd player are starting to pay off for hd dvd and it starting to make up a little ground on br and they will sale a lot more hd dvd stand alone players. the truth is that neither one of them is making a dent in dvd sales,hell dvd is starting to sell less then they use to and it's not because of the new formats they are added in and even the rentals of dvds are dropping off. people are starting to rent or buy their movies by some typ of download.they have different companies that offering downloadable moves. people might not like it but the fact is that the same thing is happing to dvds that happened to cds. i don't care who wins but how can br fans say that br is better then hd dvd when they both play at 1080p.i know that br fans will say that br has more space but that's not true any more because hd dvd will start releasing their movies on 51gb discs. br use to be the worse out of the 2 because it had less extras and it wasn't able to work with the net like hd dvd can.i know that br fans will say that know one want or watch the exras and it's not true,why is it that a 2 disc version with a whole bunch of extras out sell the single disc of the same movie when they average about $7 to $8 more.if people didn't care about extras like br fans are saying then why is it that sony is releasing a new version of br that will be able to work with the net and have more extras so it could do what hd dvd did since they first released them.sony wouldn't do this and have all the br stand alone players that people paid $600 to a $1000 be obsolete in about a year after they bought them because they want be able to play the new br disc and sony admitted this. the reason that br didn't have all the stuff that hd dvd had when sony released it was because sony rushed it so they could put a br player in the ps3 so they could get them in homes a lot quicker,it was a smart move on sony part but now they are having to upgrade br so it could do the same thing that hd dvd is doing already.so the br fans and even hd dvd fans that say that br or hd dvd has a better picture or just better are just fanboys that's bias and childish to act like they do because they are the same damn thing one isn't better then the other. people that's fighting over what format will win might be fooled because there's a good chance that they both might lose.if they don't start making a profit about the end of next year and they are in the same place they are in now neither one will win they will lose because neither one can keep loseing money year after year on them.

TANOD, you are the perfect example of SPAM right now...
lol they are already trying to spin the sales data before it gets out. Common you know at the end of the day blu ray will still outsell by the usual 2:1. Blu ray has more titles people want to watch. Sure i wanna watch bourne but not more than i wanna watch pirates 3 or spiderman for that matter.
...and Spiderman 3 were flies on a turd. You don't need blu-ray to watch those piles of stinking rubbish. Mind you, Bourne 3 and Potter 5 don't make me want to rush out and invest in HD-DVD either. I might be interested renting them all if they were available in the same format. Oh but wait, his stupid f**king format war has made sure that won't happen for a while.
Laugh out Loud.
but if this was a bluray article saying the same thing it would be approved in a heartbeat. boy it's amazing who becomes contributors these days... i'm not approving, bluray/hdvd numbers don't belong here anymore than stupid new movie release news.
I agree. This is news for gamers, not news for movie fanatics.
I really don't know why u xbox fans are mad that BR is going to be the standard HD player... That has nothing to do with xbox. Its not like HD DVD is integrated in your machine.. right.. Unless u are one of those idiots that bought the HD DVD player ad on, then ya you have the right to be mad, but at yourself not at BR and Sony...
This is from Universal... wait for the neilson numbers.
It's amazing that people care about this, it really is.
Then I realized I don't care about the format war. I have HD Cable, HD Video on Demand, Broadband internet, Netflix, DVD and Xbox Live. Don't have any more room for HD DVD and Blu-Ray, they scratch to easily anyway (thats what they want) <---They can both go to hell.
Scratch resistant material. "Then you wouldn't mind moving your PS3 while it's in the drive or leaving it out of it's case for to long? Let your little brother or a friend borrow them and leave them out." Actually, I could move my PS2 without it scratching any discs; same goes with PS3 (has the do with disc drive, not disc itself). But yeah, I leave my Blu-ray discs out without any issues. I think pounding on it with a nail will do some damage, but it's resistant to faint scratches, steel wool, oil, liquids, etc. Pretty cool stuff.
Then you wouldn't mind moving your PS3 while it's in the drive or leaving it out of it's case for to long? Let your little brother or a friend borrow them and leave them out. It is immpossible to make scratch resistant disc but data on the other hand doesn't scratch and goes with me everywhere.
Um maybe you need to "actualy" watch the video (all the way through) and a little more carefully? seriousy.
Scratch resistant discs are a fantastic idea but how do so many people manage to scratch the crap out of their discs? When you want to use it you take it out of the case and put it in the player, then when you are done with it you remove it from the player and put it back in the case, right? :-P I guess this is why i never lend movies or games to my friends, damn disc scratching _ _ _ _ pirates.
don't bother with this ediot he's an XBOT.
blu ray discs scratch too easily? easy to see you havent had 1 then moron
If the Blu-ray version of Harry Potter outsold the HD-DVD version (which basically always happens, and by a wide margin).
If people thought they were buying the blu-ray version of Harry Potter, but instead were receiving the hd-dvd version.
Anyone else getting tired of the endless bland Blu-ray vs. HD DVD news? There are very few objective articles. Considering the site is news for gamers, the top stories on the front page a few minutes ago were all format war. Don't get me wrong, i like a good read about the format war but all these articles are starting to look the same. Blu-ray yay, no wait HD DVD yay, no wait blu-ray yay. I personally think neither format is going anywhere, there is too much money invested on either side. They should just start making apple and pc style commercials and all studios can release on both formats. Problem solved, then everyone can be happy :-D
as with blu ray sales....I guess 160K is the numbers too beat right now..considering the blu-ray side aint lying...
This article amounts to tabloid reading. Believe the numbers if you dare. Spiderman 3 - 30000 in it's first week? Yeah. Right Kenny. Just like Transformers sold "190,000" in it's first week. *rolls eyes* I LOVE how the HD-DVD group has to try to go on record about statistics and sales before the official numbers are released. It's like one of your incompetent friends who always walks right into being the butt of every joke.
CONSPIRACY pay off! WAHHHH here come the sonyfanboys
This fake statistic forged by Universal surely make 360 fanboys happy lol.
