Wow, imagine if Transformers hadn't gone HD-DVD exclusives, the format war would have been over by now. And Ratatouille, Cars and Pirates of Caribbean 3 aren't even out.

I know im very curious to see how well Ratatouille and Cars will perform..POTC is a given best seller

A lot of these players are in Blu Ray homes. 90k hd dvd buyers sure left that so called movie selection on the shelf. PS3 40GB of HD perfection released only last Friday helped NA PS3 sales to 55k(vgchartz). To ps3limps below: Sony released the 40GB, spidey 3, Britney Spears, Backstreet, Ratchet Official week, Guitar Hero 3 (sold to 10% install base like MS, but Wii should have been 400k). And still beat hd dvd? Halo 3 proved that game sales effect entertainment sales of other media. Sony did good.

Danja4000d ago

marinelife94000d ago

You should really check out the Pixar short film collection. It is GREAT! My 2 yr old and I had a blast watching them before bedtime.

Leon_Blu4000d ago

Waiting for this week's results because I think Ratatouille, Cars, etc will probably propel it higher than Spidey 3.

ruibing4000d ago

I see them ranked really high on Amazon when I went online to buy the Pixar Short Films collection, an absolute work of genius. You just have to get all these BD movies from Disney this holiday, they are just that good.

I expected both to really do well but combined boxset and Spidey 3 BD had a combined sale amount of 130k.

Ratatouille should do better. Cars will be up there as well but I'm not sure about both. Something tells me the demographic these 2 films go for are not the buyers market. I already know a few dads who are buying only the SD DVD copy due to their kids rooms having only a DVD player

beoulve4000d ago

I agreed. Toshiba bought over Paramount will be an excellent move for them to stay alive.

kss4000d ago

good for blu with the onslaught of great movies coming soon, blu should end the war and declare peace in the cosmos.

pwnsause4000d ago

is this before the players went went down to $100??

beoulve4000d ago

same period as the $100 HD-DVD player.

gamesR4fun4000d ago

It was only about 100,000 units and the sales done now unless they plan on giving even more players away I doubt its going to turn the tide.

gtgcoolkid4000d ago

I think they did it to counter Pixar's releases but Pixar is pounding the sales charts right now.

cuco333999d ago

but majority of those players were sold to Walmart...

Guess who DOESN'T report to Nielson's numbers and why Nielson's data is being heavily scrutinized for not including the store ;)
