Could be that lots of HD DVD consumers got a second player for the bedroom. (that's not FUD, that's humor... )
Also, it will be interesting to see how the sub-$300 BD hardware affects the hardware sales ratios this December/January.
Yes, you're seeing software sales mirror the hardware trend. Specifically on titles released on both formats (the best way to pass judgement). Obviously certain titles like POTC being brand new will skewer overall sales numbers just as The Simpsons would. The Bourne movie kind of cancelled out the POTC edge though.
Still Harry Potter is not selling 3 to 1 on BD over HD DVD nor is it 2 to 1.
BD guys better go buy that title fast and in a hurry because...
well lets just say they better improve the software numbers.
