I personally believe that 100% of X360 add-ons should be included when we discuss 'players', but not when the term stand-alone is used. Stand alone players are pretty specifically defined as devices like the Toshiba A2 or Samsung 1400 models.

When we are just talking players - then the add-on and a percentage of the PS3 consoles MUST be included. Including all PS3s isn't accurate since it clearly isn't true that they are all being used for HD playback. Ignoring all of them is just as silly since some clearly are being used for that purpose.

I would have to say the add-on is no more or less a player than the PS3, but it quite clearly is more easily identified as an additional player in the market.
Well spoken.

Wal-mart made a statement, that they are not to carry the Venturer Hd-DVD player, and with the 200 million low end question, this was a rumour I think from AVS.

maybe those percentage's are only for the year... or they pulled them out of there ass. and 3 million makes more sense than 30.

Wal-Mart specifically said they weren't going to carry the Venturer player. Wal-Mart also never ordered any low-end HD DVD players. You have the facts wrong.

Please do try to make correct statements instead of posting crap and looking like a fool.

Toshiba said their internal survey found 16% of consumers are interested in Blu-ray, 33% are interested in HD DVD and 51% want to stick with DVD.

Of course this survey doesn't say if the surveyed knew the difference between HD DVD and DVD, or if they had HDTV players. So it's basically crap.
