Neilson Stopped Tracking Blu-ray vs HD-DVD as of 5/4/08. HD-DVD stock is starting to hit all time lows. I've started a new format to better accommodate the changes to how Neilson's numbers are reported each week due to the addition of percentages and cash spent on both the DVD and Blu-ray formats.

The most recent one. I was going to suggest having a thread about this.

"Blu-ray thread: Will go on until SD DVD's death"



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials 

 

Conservatives:  Pushing for a small enough government to be a guest in your living room, or even better - your uterus.

3/28: Blu-ray 88% HD-DVD 12% DVD 94% Blu-ray 6% - Source

 

 


That 94% vs 6% number is *completely* misleading as that is the BD top 20 vs the DVD top 20.  Considering there has been no huge releases lately and there's a much smaller set of BD discs for new BD owners (and old BD owners alike) to choose from compared to DVD, comparing such a tiny fraction of the market (only top 20) will *heavily* favor BD.

The number could very well be 98% DVD vs 2% BD.

 you can't compare a product 8 years ago vs a product now very easy.  Thats like saying the PS2 is killing the Wii in sales this generation.  You can only compare the top selling titles.  Nielson VideoScan is highly respected in the industry so if they wish to track the top 20 best selling titles of the week I'm not arguing and you shouldn't either.

One of the best things Blu-Ray has going for it is consumer satisfaction. Studies have shown that aroun 85-90% who made the shift to hi-def are glad they did. Hi-def media is a good product, with a lot of potential for the future, the key is just convincing people to make the switch. People are familiar with discs, so that may make it easier. The added bonus of making their old DVD's look better is great too, although it may cut into BD catalog sales.



We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers…Also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.  The only thing that really worried me was the ether.  There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge. –Raoul Duke

It is hard to shed anything but crocodile tears over White House speechwriter Patrick Buchanan's tragic analysis of the Nixon debacle. "It's like Sisyphus," he said. "We rolled the rock all the way up the mountain...and it rolled right back down on us...."  Neither Sisyphus nor the commander of the Light Brigade nor Pat Buchanan had the time or any real inclination to question what they were doing...a martyr, to the bitter end, to a "flawed" cause and a narrow, atavistic concept of conservative politics that has done more damage to itself and the country in less than six years than its liberal enemies could have done in two or three decades. -Hunter S. Thompson
