Lets Talk HD DVDs …
… So to continue the banter, in recent sales, Transformers may have posted a total of 115,000 sold copies of HD DVD version. Clearly not enough to catch up to the sales of other BluRay titles. And straight from the horses mouth are as follows -
…Though there was no hot new Blu-ray Disc release, consumers continued to buy more Blu-ray Discs than HD DVDs for the week ended Oct. 21, albeit by a slim 51% to 49% edge. Paramount says Transformers sold 190,000 units its first week in stores, but Home Media Magazine market research and studio estimates puts the actual number of units that sold through to consumers closer to 115,000.
Dirty rotten scoundrals, reporting invalid numbers. Pfft! But who is right? Don’t worry, the BluRay player owners of the world will change that for ya!
