Did you buy more DVD or HD/Blu

It's the end of the year so what did you buy more of?

I bought more HD/Blu

I would say my Blu/DVD are about equal this year - I bought about 125 Blu Ray discs but also a lot of DVDs during the $3.99 sales going on in the past few months (some days buying 15 during these sales).

I've cut back on HDDVD, buying only exclusive titles on that (lately, catalog titles have been a bit disappointing on it (for full price, at least) and format neutral releases I've been getting on Blu ray).

As far as full priced/new releases go, it would definitely be Blu Ray.

Interesting that this is in the main DVD forum.

So far this year, I think I bought about a dozen (or so) HD DVDs, two BDs, and one DVD (Venture Bros S2).

I'm pretty sure I spent a lot more money on HD/BD, but in terms of sheer quantity (which is what this thread is asking, not what did you "spend" more on), I'd say I still bought more standard DVDs, only b/c of the 20% off sales, I picked up a ton of old box sets, & cheaper older titles.

Blu-Ray most of the time, HD DVD only if the title is not on Blu-Ray.

Damn right! It may even be some OTHER format. I certainly don't care enough about HD/BR to re-buy this stuff again...(as I did from VHS to DVD).

I just switched the blu so my collection is rather small. I definitely bought more dvds over the year than I did bd. Since I switched to blu, i haven't purchased a standard dvd yet so I'm doing alright.

once you go HD, you ain't going back. Completely stop on DVD. Only BLU and HD DVD.

Definitely bought more DVD's this year.

I completely slowed down my Blu-Ray/HD-DVD purchases based on cost.

I think HD/BR is a waste of time and money.

DVD, for me. I haven't switched to any HD format yet because of price and convenience (I like being able to play my DVDs in my laptop).

By far more HD/BD. I don't think Ive gotten into double digits with SD DVD this year... Pretty much done with it.

For me I'm still pretty much on SD-DVD. I have the capability to play HD/BR (and have the freebies) but I haven't bought any yet. Most of what I've been buying this year are things not on HD/BR.

Hence I said "interesting" not "shocking"... I think, as you do, that if this was in the HD forum the responses would be so outweighed against DVD that someone would call the format dead.

I bought 0 HD/Blu discs, and uh, well, a lot more than 0 DVDs. Also, I do not understand option #3. It's a well known fact that everybody lies.

Bought way more HD and BR this year.

I'm really only buying TV shows on DVD at this point. The only DVD "movie" I've bought recently was Kubrick: Life in Pictures, which wasn't even anamorphic widescreen like advertised, so that pretty much sealed the deal for me...no more standard DVD!
