And in Oct '07 it was 60/40 Blu, but now, just 3 months later it's 64/36. That's an 8-point swing, not 4 (28% gap vs 20% for the mathematically challenged) in the "since inception" numbers. 8% in 3 months is HUGE. And if things keep going at more than an 80/20 split, the gap will grow a little faster.
3 months is a 1 year head start? Someone correct me if I'm wrong but it was also only 20 titles or so correct?

What I was refering to was the 64/36 split at the end of the year. The 85:15s aren't changing that ratio. Which means sales are extremely low and pathetic in January.
