I’m curious about why this is news? HD DVD went 3 months without any real new releases… OF COURSE people with HD DVD drives are going to jump and buy when a couple of new movies come out (Happy Feet, Children of Men). And the Matrix box set pre-orders are nothing unexpected either. And these are all rankings that HD DVD has had in the past. It could be argued that HD DVD is pulling out of it’s decline a little, but the proof in the pudding will be if any of these titles can REMAIN with decent numbers for any length of time after their release. The Departed was on HD DVD and Blu-Ray, and ranked higher on Amazon on HD DVD then Blu-Ray… but the Blu-Ray version outsold the HD DVD version by 50%, and currently has an amazon ranking 3x higher then the HD DVD counterpart. There is deffinately a VERY strong support base for HD DVD… but in the end, it’s still a much MUCH smaller support base then that for Blu-Ray. So movies sell much better over time on Blu-Ray then on HD DVD, since sales persist longer.
