LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Blu-ray DVD titles outsold rival HD-DVD titles by almost 2-to-1 in the first nine months of the year, but analysts expect additional HD-DVD support and new hit releases to "transform" the high-definition DVD battle score in the fourth quarter.

Home Media Research, a division of Home Media Magazine, said on Tuesday total U.S. sales of Blu-ray discs, using a Sony Corp (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research)-backed technology, totaled 2.6 million units from January 1 through Sept 30, versus 1.4 million HD-DVD discs sold.

So sick of this. I want everyone to be doing one fucking thing. I'm pissed Transformers came out on HD-DVD and not Bluray.

When you're giving away 5 with every Playstation, it's not surprising that they "outsold" the competition.

You don't automatically get the 5, you have to fill out a form and send in your receipt for the system etc. And I don't think they count giveaways as sales anyway.
