Blu-ray holds off tough storm by HD-DVD
Last week we reported that the Blu-ray format was seriously handing it to HD-DVD. In the week ending November 4, HD-DVD only featured 1 title, Transformers, in the top 10 high-def movie sales. The rest was dominated by 9 Blu-ray titles. This week, HD-DVD made a bit of a move on Blu-ray, but nothing tough enough to even leave a scratch.
In the week ended November 11, Blu-ray and HD DVD sales compassion (movie titles) shows that Blu-ray clearly succeeded over HD-DVD by having 65% of the high-def titles being sold on the Blu-ray format verses HD-DVD, which had 35%.
1. Ratatouille -- Blu-ray
2. Spider-Man 3 – Blu-ray
3. Cars – Blu-ray
4. Transformers – HD DVD
5. I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry – HD DVD
6. Spider-Man The High Definition Trilogy – Blu-ray
7. Pixar Short Films Collection Vol. 1 – Blu-ray
8. Knocked Up – HD DVD
9. 300 – Blu-ray
10. Meet the Robinsons – Blu-ray
So while HD DVD sales have received a small boost, Blu-ray continues to hold the top spot. Check back next week for more Blu-ray statistics.
