Re: HD DVD Players Sold Out Nationwide This Weekend - Blu-ray In Trouble?
It looks like it was just the DVD version of Transformers that out sold Spider-man 3 DVD 3-to-1. But whatever, it is just a bunch of PR number reporting.
Anyway, I think my point is that if players are not playing the titles, then what are software titles worth? Nothing.
What happens if/when the dual players start being the norm as standalone players? Then software titles make no difference. And both formats will exist together, or studios will choose one or the other. But with dual players it doesn't make a bit of difference.
So, in the end I believe the players are going to make the bigger difference here.
