David do you have a press release on this? How about something more concrete then your assurance :P

I personally don't think it's MGM either. What studio it is isn't going to matter if it doesn't happen soon.

So after the first official week of Toshibas advertised new prices on hddvd players in ads at BB, CC, etc. software sales increase to a 35:65 split.

Not bad for a dying format to increase its market share by 84% compared to the last few weeks.

Still it was poor sales number for both formats this week, there hasn't been a must have release on either format in a while.

HD DVD jumped 33% to generate 51,878 in unit sales. BD fell about 17% to 147,180 units sold

Best Buy & Amazon had Buy 1 get 1 free sales on hd-dvd last week, maybe that'll get the BOGO sales back in Blu-Ray sooner.

Moose, I donít think Amazon had a BOGO last week, but Best Buy did.

This week is the 100 Universal titles on sale on Amazon, next week is another BOGO at Best Buy.

Itís a pretty good idea, keep sales respectable until some bigger releases arrive.

Actually it's a 50% off sale at Amazon if you missed it you might want to check it out & stock up
