Whatever happened to bootlegging? (JK)

Last Xmas HD DVD went from a 60% lead to only 40% market share.
This of course happened when the PS3 was introduced in the US and Japan.

This year the PS3 sales are looking much better and us Europeans are also in the Xmas race this time.

I think we will see Blu-ray going from 60-65% to 80% market share minimum.

It really is.
It's a sneaky horse but it works none the less.

Me needs to go buy MI series Blu ray now thank you.

There is really a site called sonyprotectiongroup.com? Are things really that bad for Sony?

Something needing "protection" implies that it is in danger..

Daishi5821d ago

Yes, they study the effects of Blue Tooth on children, old people, and pregnant women...

like Xbox360fanboy or something(they aren't biased as well)

But you want some laughs check out www.sonydefenseforce.com

There are going to be more BluRay players sold in the next two months than dead HD-DVD format ever sold.

Only die hard Xbots are still clinging to the rotting HD-DVD corpse. HD-DVD fanboys should go cry off in the corner with the Dreamcast and Amiga freaks over how life isn't fair.

Well.. except that HD DVD has the #1 selling high-def title with a record 190,000 copies sold in the first week.. and HD DVD standalone players are still outselling Blu-ray players... and HD DVD laptops sell 9 to 1 over Blu-ray laptops... good thing PS3 sales are so bad they are doing another $100 price cut (within 4 months)... otherwise, without PS3, Blu-ray would be gone by now...

Well, except that Blu Ray is outselling HDDVD 2:1, and that PS3 sales kill all HDDVD player sales, and that HDDVD players have gotten many hundred dollar price cuts within 4 months good thing Toshiba Microsoft IBM Universal and Paramount/Dreamworks have big pockets, otherwise, without them, HDDVD would be gone by now. I agree with your points, but I can do it too.

Name ONE country where HD-DVD disks are outselling Bluray disks. You can't, because there isn't one.

Who cares about laptops, anyone using their laptops to play hidef disks and anyone who thinks it will factor in the outcome in the war is a complete MORON. Here are last weeks NA disk sales numbers, read em and weap.

Week End. 10/14 Blu-ray Disc: 71% HD-DVD: 29% nearly 3 to 1 BIA!!!

Remember PS3s aren't counted as standalones and the percentage sold is 56% HDVD stand alone to 44% Bluray.

On top of that... HD-DVD just released it's best title and they're still going to lose the week in total sales. But I'm sure everything is still rosey for you isn't it XBOT?!?!?!

Antiomo5821d ago

your trying too hard dude.

have you ever heard of the statistical term called outlier.... just look it up.

Transformers is an awesome movie it really is but There are many other movies out there and most of them are on blu. Btw blu has their own outliers pirates, spiderman, and die hard. Guess what that is not 3 movies... its really 10 big sellers

hahahabutt5821d ago (Edited 5821d ago )

With out PS3, Blu Ray is Nothing. what if Sony can't aford to keep PS3 alive past 4 years. Blu-Ray would die along with it..lol (joking) But serious, HD-DVD ain't going no where and I bought Transformers in Hd today. It was awsome.

I can't begin to understand why a site like www.sonyprotectiongroup.com would write an article stating blu-ray will come out on top. Oh, wait.......sony protection?

Is this a concerted effort to drive people away from N4G? Two lots of ads posts on top of each other in a short space of time. Doubled-up. Alongside obtrusive video and banner ads. FFS. This site is going to lose everyone but the most die hard. Or force adblock use. Maybe that is the intention here where N4G has struck a deal with adblocking tools/designers?

Jin_Sakai1d 6h ago (Edited 1d 6h ago )

After N4G sold to BGFG it’s become clear the site will never be the same. They push their own videogamer.com propaganda non stop. People should team up and start a new gaming site like how Resetera was born after the Neogaf fallout.

Double_O_Revan1d ago

Been using Adblocker for years. Those ads were bad back then. I don't even want to know what it looks like these days. They did this to themselves.
