Mr. Burke. Come on now. Videoscan says 1.2 to 1. That is 60% of the market not counting Amazon, Wal-Mart, and many others. You're telling me that the 40% increased the number the exact opposite of what Warners official numbers state and Universal commented on?

Funny how there is no mention of what Warner has to say about the matter isn't it.
This is typical of Susanne Ault's reporting. She rarely looks into any piece of information.
Universal's research also shows that gamers don't buy movies. I guess the attach rate of Blu-ray standalone players is freakin' huge then.
Also, if Harry Potter HD outsold BD and Bourne was the #1 title, how did BD not finally lose a week with all those BOGO's as well?
Something doesn't add up. I think you'll find the HP numbers were in favour of Blu-ray by somewhere around the 1.4:1 to 1.5:1 region.
Also the BOGO were for BD. Name the Retail Chain that had BOGO for HD DVD. Best Buy had BOGO for BD not HD DVD.
I know your pay grade Mr. Burke. I know who you are. So quit trying to post your extremely biased and childish nonsense around here. Posting reviews of HD DVDs and giving them one star is childish. Are you that scared of losing?
Please post a link of a HD DVD PRG member spreading rumors like the current Warners to BD rumor fed by a certain Vice Chairman.
Amir may have stated that BD50s were vaporware (which they were) and may have been wrong about them being delayed further but he never posted any Studio rumors. Even when he knew that Paramount and Dreamworks were about to go Red.
