60 to 70% of the revenue may come from Blu-Ray but how much of it is profit? HD DVD may be more profitable per disc so the figures may be closer than that. Just a suggestion, it may be complete nonsense and we'll probably never know for certain

By the time I finished reading this thread that turned into a pissing contest, the HD DVD version of Planet Earth was still outselling the BD version.

Thanks for the link for the videobusiness article. According to the article even the PS3 can't do the PIP for the new BD-J. I didn't know that.
Few Blu-ray players include picture-in-picture capability, for instance, not even the PlayStation 3.
Sony’s current and summer 2007 stand-alone models and available Pioneer and Philips units are among those lacking the picture-in-picture feature.
I do hope Pixar releases "Cars" in September. If not they probably would push it to around the holiday season. I'd really like to have that title.
Again here is the quote the digital bits got from Disney. Choose which site you want to believe. According to him he got the info Buena Vista Home Entertainment president.
At a press event in Hollywood last night for the forthcoming Pirates high-def release, Buena Vista Home Entertainment president Bob Chapek revealed that his company has started production on the Blu-ray Disc release of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, likely due to hit stores in time for the holidays later this year.
It's also a jab at the BDA for not having the specs & complete players in place for format launch so those of us that have already bought players would have to buy new players if we want to take advantage of all the things Blu-ray can do eventually. BD-J isn't mandantory to be in players until 10/31 & there is no news on when BD+ will be implemented & Fox will be back on board.

Yes, lets hope for more BD this summer fall. As you see I also have the Toshiba HD-XA1, bought that as early as august 2006. I love movies and love both formats because I love HD. BUT I do hope for one format only. Here in my city one videostore just startet blu-ray rentals and that is a great start.
I now only buy BD to support the format I think will win in the end. But I also buy some Universal-titles.
Too bad the BD-J and the BD+ is not ready, cus I think we would had a lot more titles from all companies for Blu-raySony VW50 Pearl, 92" DreamScreen, Toshiba HD-XA1, Yamaha RX-V2400, SVS SBS 01, SVS 20-39PC+ Playstation3
