You think HP will actually sell more copies on HD-DVD? Interesting prediction. I disagree but we'll have to wait and see.

Yah, I think it will appeal to the folks who bought all those players recently at Wal-Mart. But, as you say, we shall see.

Hmmm. I still expect HP to do better on BD than HD DVD.

That being said, most BD owners own a PS3. One would think a PS3 owner is more likely to watch 300 than HP.

Either way, WB will be happy.

Wow Sensual! That's quite the limb you're on! WB has had about a 2:1 ratio for just about every release, but you think that HP will sell more on HD DVD? I'm predicting a 60:40 split in favour of BD. Still a healthy margin, but the Walmart move has to make some sort of difference.

The article says S3 sold 130,000 copies in 6 days and Transformers sold 190,000 in it's first week. Naturally in tru blu fashion of course the bluboys in the article dispute the Transformers numbers. Heaven forbid HDDVD should outdo Bluray in any way shape or form [gasp]. If the fire sales keep coming from Toshiba on their "outdated and obsolete" HDDVD players cutting edge BD could be left out in the cold.

The Harry Potter numbers will be hella interesting for sure. If HD DVD outsells BD, it will be a sign for sure.

HT gearhead, if you've bothered to read ANY information available with regards to Paramounts claims, from unbiased and industry sources, you would know that the numbers have been discredited. There hasn't been one independent source that has backed up Paramounts numbers, so rather than throwing around the infantile "bluboys" insults, do some investigating before you post.

Well you seem so sure of your facts post me some links. It just seems that whenever HDDVD makes even the slightest headway some of you guys are quick to shoot it down as a misquote, etc.

HT Gearhead...

C'mon - from the article itself:

Many industry sources wound up disputing that figure, however, believing it was actually tens of thousands lower.
You can choose to believe whatever you wish...

All I can say is that both SM3 and Transformers looked great on my setup.

Why you guys are still arguing about which format is better is beyond me! I just want to watch the HDM .. period. At the current prices, owning both is very low risk situation.
