Default Planet Earth on HD DVD Sets New Milestone - # 4 On Amazon.com

Mod note from Blurry: I moved this from the HD DVD software section since the thread seemed to be mostly composed of feedback type comments.

Planet Earth - The Complete BBC Series on HD DVD had set a new milestone this week in the high-def format battle. For the first time ever a high-definition title has broken the Top 5 on Amazon.com at # 4.

This beat out the former winner Casino Royale on Blu-ray, which made it to # 6 about a month ago. What makes this even more intriguing is that it is a $70 documentary box set, and not a box-office hit selling for $25. Although Planet Earth is also available on Blu-ray, the HD DVD version has consistently ranked higher, and one can surmise that BD-exclusive studios are paying close attention to success like this. HD DVD is a force to be reckoned with.

Why is there no headline on HDD's front page? Blu-ray got one with Casino Royale, we want one too!

...because it's just a matter of time until someone comes on here to follow-up with the standard "..yeah, but let's see where it is a month from now" response.

I'm sure the news will be posted once the series is officially shipped. If not, then we can complain.
...but until then, give it some time.

From past headlines on HDD I have got the impression that at least some, if not all, writers are clearly pro-BD...

BLU RAY had a big surge for the first quarter because of PS3. HD DVD had very little movement because of studios NOT releasing many titles. HD DVD supporters have been craving new titles and FINALLY are getting them. The drought is over.

The vast part of this thread has seemed to be site feedback, so I am moving it to the feedback section
