Awesome. I helped with HD #1 and 2

But, just saw this on IMDB news, and figured this was a good place to post:


Some Hi-Def DVD Discs Selling in the Hundreds


While much has been made of the strong high-definition DVD sales of such films as Casino Royale, The Departed, Batman Begins and Superman Returns, sales charts show a steep drop-off below the top level, with some films selling fewer than 200 copies since they were released, according to the website HighDefDigest.com. Citing figures from VideoScan, the website noted that during the week ending March 18, when Casino Royale topped the sales charts with 28,233 units sold, the "top-ten" list included one title that sold just over 3,000 units, while all the rest sold fewer than 2,000, including three that sold fewer than 1,000. The website concluded that the sales figures are "a sobering reminder" that the HD DVD and Blu-ray formats "have a long way to go in their shared quest to supplant standard-def DVD."

If they are selling so badly then why not lower the prices. I know Amazon most are $19.99 but when if I want something right away I'd rather not pay $29.99 at the store for one.

The studios need to start releasing the jaw-droppers and the Academy Award winners. Throw some exclusive bonuses on there, too. I'm supporting HD DVD, but they have to start releasing some of the great movies. Hopefully, The Matrix Trilogy will kick start the sales figures.

I thought these absolute sales figures were interesting.

I'm still not buying any HD DVD discs until they pick a format and stick with it. Or players that can play both are available at a reasonable price.
