That's where I get my DVD's, HD-DVD's and BD's from.

interesting reversal of the original quote.

Actually again it was originally a QUOTE. Now it's not. He never emailed her and said he was misquote she was harrassed and told to change it. They couldn't prove the quote so she changed it.

Still interestingly enough yesterday was the first day EVER that a HD disc of any kind was the top seller at Amazon.

It was Harry Potter on HD DVD.

Can you provide confirmation that "harrassment" caused here to change the numbers?

It's amazing what a buy-one-get-one-free sale on Amazon can do. I'd love to see what would happen if they had that same sale with the Blu-ray Disc.

Read her article about changing it. Also again it went from a quote to a non-quote. Because she doesn't want to misquote him.

Doesn't really matter the Nielsen numbers are getting worse for BD people with the after Christmas sales.

Also BD did a similar BOGO but never with the success that HD DVD is showing with Amazon right now. They had 41 titles in the top 100 at one point. They are doing equally as well at Retail Stores.

Although Best Buy just started a BOGO to match the BD BOGO.

I'm glad. It's good for consumers.

Go buy movies.

Because honestly that is all that matters movies in high def glory.

1) The Nielsen's were 51% for Blu-ray the week TF was released. Are they worse than that? I didn't think so.
2) What success is HD DVD having with it's BOGO? We can see rankings, but have no idea what that means in terms of units sold. With no-one buying DVD's (this is a slow week traditionally in retail) it's the perfect time to have a BOGO on the biggest titles of the year and hitting #1 is not as large a feat as Memento, a catalogue title, hitting #2 in July 2007.
3) They are doing equally as well at retail stores? What's this based on?

I've seen the Nielsons being reported as 69%-31% again this week, again with Blu-Ray winning the week.
