Nielsen numbers for week ending 9/7/08

From Engadget



After slacking and missing last week's Nielsen VideoScan chart, courtesy of Home Media Magazine, we're back for more -- believe us, you didn't miss much. For the second week in a row sales are up, so much in fact that we haven't seen revenues this high for Blu-ray since Jumper was released in June. While last week's increase was due to The Nightmare Before Christmas, this week the Blu-ray release of Transformers easily killed the competition. This one title easily accounts for DVD revenues going down, while Blu-ray's going up. So while this isn't really an indication future success, this holiday season will be when the big Hollywood DVD and Blu-ray titles are all released day-and-date with each other. We expect about the same results that week -- although not at this degree -- as there are some more great catalog catchup titles for Blu-ray that have been available on DVD for ages .

Could possibly mean that the best (maybe?) is yet to come.

From Engadget,

Blu-ray sales were back down again this week to 8 percent, on the Nielsen VideoScan charts courtesy of Home Media Magazine. The past few months have made it harder and harder for us to find new things to talk about as the trend is so solid we can almost predict the results weeks before they are official. The good news for Blu-ray is that even when it is down, while DVD stays flat, the more popular titles like The Forbidden Kingdom still garner 11 percent of the market for Blu. For those who don't think Blu-ray has a demographic, you might finally start believing this week as Baby Mama (barely) outsold Forbidden Kingdom on DVD, at the same time it hardly managed fourth place on the Blu-ray charts only stealing 2.5 percent away from DVD. Next week should be a little better, but not much, as Speed Racer, 88 Minutes, and the duo from Weinstein should help out a bit.

While there is now sub $200 Blu-Ray players I don't think the price for software will be dropping soon.
They will milk every cent they can for all the big blockbuster movies when they come out this fall.
But I do hope for more Buy 1 get 1 sales this holiday season!

Unfortunately, by the time Sony figures out that short term greed will be superseded by download HD volume in just a few years - and that those companies who own the bandwidth through the internet will be the next winners, then they will most likely wind up out in the cold without any internet connection, not even for PS3.
