It appears that The box sets are hurting HD DVD's performance in the Nielson, since they can only count as one unit. As money can only go so far, many wanting these box sets are unable (or unwilling) to buy much else. In this sense, Nielson's ratios can be deceptive if this is not taken into account. It goes to show that no system is foolproof.

4 out of the top 10 ain't bad for a dead format especially with 3 of them being $70+ RRP

Week ended 8/05 was 62% Blu-ray and YTD moved to 66% Blu-ray. That is the first tick in either direction for year to date in some time. I guess being out sold 62% to 38% is a big improvement in the view of the HD DVD supporters. ITD remained at 60% Blu-ray. Nothing much of significance. I am not sure how much of the "300" sales were included here, but it apparently was split about the same so it really doesn't matter.

Week: 61/39

WoW! the SID changed. It has always been 60/40. Something doesn't add up. For the SID to change, that means HD DVD would have to have outsold BD on 300. This is what caused the change - 250,000+ copies of 300 sold.

If the week is correct then the SID should have remained 60/40 or gone 61/39. But it went in HD DVD's favor.

Something smells here. Where are those pie charts we usually see from Videoscan. I am going to look for them.

Found them - it says 60/40





Colt45's numbers are off!

Very interesting week in sales. Most notably is the 250,000 copies of HD '300' sold (which I erroneously figured were units shipped, because they seemed too high to be true). That is an amazing total, and even HD DVD's 'cut' of 87,000 is astonishing when you consider the much smaller player base. But since this movie is perfect for the PS3 demographic, it turned out that a lot of them bought it so congrats to Blu-ray for selling over 160,000 copies of this movie. I think this movie will spur on these formats in a way like The Matrix did for DVD back in 2000.

Another interesting thing is that HD DVD had 5 titles in the top 10 and actually had more sales outside of '300'. If '300' had been released the following week, or a week earlier, we'd be discussing how HD DVD won its first week in the Nielsons.

So, in summary, HD DVD, in spite of 'losing' 62:38, is showing as many signs of life as ever.

USA Today and that "Sony insider" said 65/35 and it turns out it was really 62/38 . .

Well he was close . .

Actually the movie '300' sales ratio was 65:35, but overall (with all the movies' sales included) it was 62:38.

Ahhhh . . you are right! I stand corrected. So it was a hell of a week for HD DVD because we improved that ratio by 6% (BD loses 3 - HD DVD gains 3) so people bought a bunch of movies. Excellent from the "losing "format. THIS deserves a banana!

You are learning about the wording when using quoting ratios Grasshopper.

This is the first time I have noticed YTD be less than 67% Blu-ray so the improvement is noted. I hope the trend is reversed and it bounces back up to 67% next week. Blu-ray needs to be moving forward not giving up ground, not that winning 66% to 34% is equivalent to losing, it isn't, but for someone that wants more indicators pushing retailers to abandon the second place format, it needs to be heading north, not south.

Lmao, 300 sales made every other high def titles sales look absolutely pathetic. Has there ever been a 1.47% (Casino Royale) of the sales thing in the top 10 before in HD?

"300" is really the first title I would call a success. I am sure a handful of titles including "Casino Royale" have been profitable, but no other title would rate what I would call a success. It still seems to me a reall weird film to sell so well. I haven't seen the "300" DVD sales figures to know how that compares.
