Ok if you count the addon it was around 11 to 1 in hardware sales for November.

I wasn't counting them and most people don't. Microsoft does because they argue it is only for HD DVD playback and it does have a better attachment rate than the PS3 when it is used as a BD player.

450,000 stand alones are out there in HD DVD and only 300,000 BD players.

I still think it's funny you point to that article by the Digital Bits like he did anything but pull numbers like the 1.9M PS3s just because it justified his arguement, even when he was off by was 4M units?
