Page 3 on the 'Home Page Magazine' it reports of the Blu-ray/HD DVD sales ratio for the week ending 30th December and this time Blu-ray leads by a ratio of 61:39.
The last week should see even better sales
and I agree with Tanod, it will be even better for last week..
PLUS the PIRATES (x rated) BD is selling like crazy
NOTE:- a BD title for the first time topped the AMAZON CHARTS
YEA, High Def PrOn FTW!!!1
Previously all the Harry Potters on HD DVD were 1-5 on the amazon DVD charts but that's because of the BOGOF promotion.
oh crap whoelse you didn't steal the bogof story did you cause i posted that story, man you have a good eye for blu-ray stories i just cant keep up anyway i think its obvious who is going to win the format war- sony got some really nice supporters and its paying of big time
yea. Congrats to Blu-ray for Winning another week for Dominating HD-DVD all year last year. cant wait for CES!
something to note: p.12 says that Blu-ray Harry Potter outsold HD-DVD's counterpart by about 13%. Also 300 on blu-ray made the top ten. I hope WB is paying attention!
And wondering why Blu-Ray Harry Potter outsold HD-DVD Harry Potter by 23% (do the math) when Blu-Ray players out number HD-DVD players by 300%.
I hope they are too. They need to pick a side and end this thing. Honestly, I think there are a lot of things to consider besides just "who is winning ATM." Consider that PS3 makes up 93% of all blu ray players out there. Now consider that the attache rate for the average blu-ray player owner is .6. That means that on average, each blu ray player owner doesn't even own a full movie. The average attache rate for an HD-DVD owner is *SIX* movies.
Consider also that although there are millions of ps3's out there, but only a shave under a million hd-dvd players. **IF** what I'm saying remains true, then it is entirely possible that HD-DVD can potentially close the gap. All things considered, being that BD players outnumber HD-DVD players 4 or 5 to 1, its kind of suprising to see HD-DVD keeping up at all.
Full disclosure: I own an HD-DVD player, and I also want a ps3. What I want more than either is a single format though. Please dont accuse of me being a format fanboy. I love movies and games and I don't care how or what they are played on. I'm just trying to point out that although Blu Ray is winning by what seems like a noticeable margin, there are a number of things to consider. Particularly if you are a production house looking at saving money and choosing a format.
Another week won by blu-ray, but isn't it 12/23/07, not 12/30/07? If you look above the pie chart on p.3 it says the 23rd.
Also, when comparing stand alone players, HD-DVD is outselling BR by a huge margin.
It's only PS3 users that have BR players, this will turn the tide soon enough and HD-DVD will be on top. Since stand alone BR players aren't being bought.
Quick: Google "Warner Bros" and "Blu-Ray"
This is my prediction.
(Yeah, right. I'm not even close to being that cool. This is posted after I read the news about Warner...haha)
