HD DVD makes a comeback.... and then chokes

Postby dolphinius_rex on Thu May 03, 2007 4:29 pm

Well, HD DVD managed to make a temporary comeback, when combining a period of slow Blu-Ray releases, and the massive April 15th HD DVD group buy. And from I've heard they came within 17,000 discs of actually matching Blu-Ray in sales.

Unfortunately for HD DVD, they couldn't keep up the momentum. And this weeks sales ratios are back to what is quickly becoming the norm for 2007:

Weekly sales ratio according to Nielsen for the week ended April 29:
Blu-ray: 71%
HD-DVD: 29%

I could have sworn I was in the right section when I posted this.... thanks for moving it (whoever did). I guess I should spend more time sleeping and less time looking at spreadsheets huh? #-o
