Not bad for a dying format to increase its market share by 84% compared to the last few weeks.
Still it was poor sales number for both formats this week, there hasn't been a must have release on either format in a while.

HD DVD jumped 33% to generate 51,878 in unit sales. BD fell about 17% to 147,180 units sold

Best Buy & Amazon had Buy 1 get 1 free sales on hd-dvd last week, maybe that'll get the BOGO sales back in Blu-Ray sooner.
