Blu-ray leads HD DVD 61% : 39% Spiderman 3 tops the chart of highest grossers followed by Shrek :The Third and Transformers
I find the page that was linked to very hard to read.
Ultimatum is at number 6 btw, expand the image or increase the resolution.
Wonder how long this war will drag on r if they can come to some kind of truce.
With Spiderman 3 being on top... I think Paramount might have made the wrong deal...we will see after christmas 2007.....
at the top 20 at the box office.. 15 of those movies will make it over to blu ray.. looking good for the br camp
it look to me that blu-ray is going to be the winner in the end!!! when paramount chose to back up hd-dvd they forgot one thing, blu-ray player come in ever ps3 sold worldwide. so if what sony say it ture there somewhere from 6 to 7 million ps3 sold worldwide now, that 7 million blu-ray dvd buyer on the market as of now. and that number only going to go up as ps3 go down in price and if that 40gb ps3 for 399 turn out to be true then that the end to hd-dvd.
Sony has maybe 4.5 mill sold and yes blu-ray will be sony biggest failure outside the ps3. Keep dreaming it up about those 4D graphics and 2009.
Go the fook away...
keep dreaming of failure,it ain't happening...and by the way,anyone who wishes failure to a video game console is a big fat FANBOY
Your comment was Off Topic and you intentionally flamed here. BTW, the Coen brothers are overrated and The Big Lebowski was garbage. How's that for Off Topic.
i disagree with you, ps3 is not a failure nor is blu-ray. and your comments show how much of a 360 fanboy you are, but before you talk carp look up the number first. if blu-ray the failure like you say then why is it outselling hd-dvd 5 to 1 now? or why did hd-dvd people had to pay 150 million to paramount to back them up? why is blu-ray leads over hd-dvd 61%? if that what you call failing then let them keep failure then be wining like hd-dvd i say!!!
The battle cry was always "bluray outselling HD DVD 2:1." Assuling that was true, and bluray is now outselling HD DVD 60:40, its now 1.5:1. It does seem the "dead" HD DVD is making a comeback, adn, the longer this drags on, the better chance HD DVD has of winning as more people adopt an HD format that aren't loyal to the playstation brand. No one is dead, and its not close to over, but bluray needs to finish the war fast, or they will end up hurting.
...Only when one of the HD formats starts to outsell its DVD counterpart can all get excited. The number of units sold in either HD camp is pathetic compared to good ole DVD. Let me ask this of anyone who has bought into either format - whats it like being a format whore? Cause thats all anyone is who has been duped into picking a side in the hope that it will make it win.
I know that this beautiful, gorgeous winter holiday season will clarify everything in terms of the which format will definately succeed and which gaming console is truly going to shine. In the history of gaming I think this Christmas is going to be the most exciting, fantastic release of major high production games that ties into the biggest console war ever. I truly can't wait to play all the games I'm going to buy and then read the reports of which console sold the most and which games sold the most too. Its a battle between SONY, Microsoft and Nintendo - who will be named the supreme console?
We're talking about sales of Blue Ray v HD-DVD. Lets just imagine for a moment that Halo causes every 360 made in the world to be brought. I'm sure it would be great for microsoft. But it won't make a bit of difference to the HD disk format war. 360 do not play HD-DVD as standard, and if people want to get a drive they'll be getting their costs approaching the cost of the PS3. So in the end, no extra HD-DVD players would be sold so this will not help the format at all.
Wow, imagine if Paramount was not Blu-ray exclusive. Then the 3 of Spiderman 3, Transformers and Shrek the 3rd would have killed the competition here.
Why do you guys rant and rave at each other about HD-DVD & Blu-Ray?! As far as I see, they're both the same (except slight diffrences). Fact if there are alot of consumers out there that are not aware about Hi-Def. In matter of fact, not all consumers have a HDTV (1080p to be percise to experience true HD). It's just sad that you have two formats instead of one that just make peope more confused. And to spend $1000 for a "hybrid" Super-Blu DVD player is crazy. Having studios choosing sides is crazy also. That just make things worse.
Let's be realistic. This 61-39 split of last week is proof alone. Sure they won another week, but by a very small margin. Factor in that far more PS3s were purchased over HD DVD players leads you to believe that most who buy the system is for gaming and not BD playing like Sony wished it to be. For the amount of players on the market over the competition (including PS3), for the previous 'lack' of studio support, for the aggressive marketing; the blu camp should be dominating some 80-20, 90-10... Alas, 1.5:1 advantage with some estimated 7 times more the players. Embrace both formats, but definitely stick to the PS3 as the BD player of choice. You don't want to own a BD standalone now especially since having an unfinished spec (BD) witch can't be upgraded leads to obsolete players and very pissed of customers
to say blu-ray not wining the format war over hd-dvd is not realistic!!! or your just a 360 hd-dvd fanboy. the lead of blu-ray grow bigger every day and not just cause it a better format overall but because also of ps3 sold worldwide every day,what is it now 5 or 6 million. that alot of blu-ray player and don't tell me this people don't use the ps3 both at a game station and a blu-ray player. unlike the 360 which just using dvd and not hd-dvd dumb move i say.and to say that people that have a ps3 just for game and are going to buy a hd-dvd player for movie is just dumb to!!! and it don't help that you have to buy the add on for the 360 to play hd-dvd which is also a dumb move by Microsoft, it just show how money hunger they are. so all in all sony puting the blu-ray in the ps3 was a good move not only for the system for game but also for blu-ray movie.
