Default Re: HD Disc Format War Not Over By a Long Shot

Huh, a few things Bill Hunt must have forgot to mention when he posted his post-Warner NPD pie charts:
“Sharp Blu-ray players accounted for over 30% of sales, as they were offered free to buyers of the company's LCD televisions.”

“Sony -- also accounting for one-third of sales -- had a similar $400-off deal for Blu-ray players when buying a Sony HDTV.”

“Panasonic, like Sharp, offered a free Blu-ray player and made up for the remaining third of units sold.”

“NPD's numbers do not include online sales from the likes of Amazon, where Toshiba's HD-A3 HD DVD player is the number one seller in the DVD player category and number 14 in all of electronics. By contrast, standalone Blu-ray players do not make the electronics list.”
