Iron Man lives up to expectations, breaks all Blu-ray records

From Engadget,

Although we'll probably have to wait another week for the official Nielsen VideoScan charts to reflect the sales of Iron Man this week on Blu-ray, director Jon Favreau was bragging on the Howard Stern Show that the sales of Iron Man had already outsold every other Blu-ray release to date. We can't say we're that surprised though, especially after reports that the load on Paramount's BD-Live servers were too much to handle -- not to mention the fact that it is/was the number two selling disc on Amazon (the DVD version is number one). Either way, it'll be interesting to see how much better Iron Man moved discs then the previous record holders like Spider Man 3, I Am Legend and Casino Royale.

From Gizmodo,

Iron Man Blu-ray has outsold every other Blu-ray release to date.

According to a casual announcement by John Favreau on the Howard Stern show, as of Thursday, Iron Man Blu-ray has outsold every other Blu-ray release to date. Without firm sales numbers, the accomplishment might not be saying much. Yet it's still a testament to how a major new release (which is verified awesome on 150 inches) can reinvigorate the Blu-ray platform. But Iron Man camp, you'd better watch your back. Because The Dark Knight is coming to whoop you up December 9th, bitches*!

It only took me around 5 mins to download the BD live stuff.
It was a very fun movie & I'm looking forward to the sequel.
I did notice I had to really turn up the volume to get it to play at the level I wanted.

Iron Man's Blu-ray release manages 20 percent of DVD's market share

From Engadget,

At this point it seems that the only one not talking about how well Iron Man sold on Blu-ray is Paramount, as Adam's Research tells Video Business that the Blu-ray version of Iron Man managed to take 20 percent of the market share away from DVD. This number confirms our estimates that Blu-ray market share has doubled since HD DVD demise. The previous record holder, I Am Legend, that was released around the time HD DVD called it quits, only manged 9 percent. We have to say that this even exceeds our expectations though, and although there is no doubt that this title fits in the Blu-demographic, it once again is some indication that the future might just be Blu after all.

You know, this is all very interesting. I believe, there is still some remorse out there, from the HD DVD/BLU-RAY war, fight, scandal, whatever you want to call it. People and consumers have been burned a few times now. And this one, with DTV and HD on the rise, the timing was horrible. So, while I like what happened with Iron Man, I think we still have a while before all folks jump in, and buy, once again a whole new library.

We must remember, we are the audio/videophiles, the rest or majority, are not going to keep getting beat up, and them jump into the fray, without some doubt.

what average consumer is getting beat up? it was ultra-early adoptors who bought into HD DVD and BD back at the onset of the war... ie, the ones willing to take the risk of getting burned. The regular folks waited on the side lines for one format to win. Now it's won. There's nothing to get beat up or burned over now... we've got a single format embraced by all the studios alike. And it's succeeding amazingly well.
