HD DVD Title Sales Nearly Equal With Blu-ray Disc

Submitted by: DudeofDeath @ 09:29 AM | Thursday, April 26, 2007 | (url: http://www.dailyt...)

The war for your hard earned HD movie dollars continues, and HD-DVD sales are not as far behind Blu-Ray sales as recent articles may have led you to believe.

According to stats cited by the HD DVD Group, which are based on recent data from Nielsen Videoscan, Universal, Warner and Toshiba, HD DVD titles are now at 998,059 units sold, representing less-than 2,000 units shy of Blu-rays announced figures.

I wish we could edit comments, but I'll add this

The HD DVD Promotional Group announced last week that it has sold more than 100,000 standalone players in the U.S. since introduction, and claims to be currently outselling dedicated Blu-ray players by a four-to-one margin.

Most people with a blu-ray player don't have a dedicated blu-ray player. Who'se going to buy a $1000 dollar blu-ray player when you can get one with a gaming system for $600

Yea, actually Sony sells 130,000 Blu-Rays a week in the PS3, so it's actually suprising that HD-DVD disk sales are only a few thousand shy of Blu-Ray disk sales.

PS3 either needs to start selling alot more or it's done, and with it Blu-Ray disk sales. HD-DVD is definetely still a major contender, the race isn't over quite yet.

I think you mean "month" not "week" DudeofDeath.

The Blu-Ray player in the PS3 is shit compared to a dedicated Blu-ray player.

Wonder how many HD-DVD drives have been sold for the X-box 360, it would be itnerested to know those figures, I wouldn't be surprised if it is more than stand alone HD-DVD Drives.

Only about 120,000 I believe. I think the best benchmark so far has been the sales of The Departed on HD. About 2500 Blu-Ray to 1700 HD-DVD. Thats a pretty small gap considering Sony has played its last "trump card". The format war is just begining.
