Default Microsoft reports HD DVD drives sold...

I hope this isn't old news but Microsoft reported today on DVD town they have sold 155,000 HD DVD drives to date.

That puts the installed base of players for HD DVD movies at over 300,000

Long ways to go though...

I believe I read somewhere the movie/player attach rate is also like 4:1 or 5:1 as opposed to the BR 1:1 or 1.5:1

Ken Graffeo from Universal has been saying 4:1 for HD DVD and 1:1 for Blu Ray. Since their are approximately 1.4 mil PS3's, 4 x 300,000 = 1.2 million movies for HD DVD.

This is why the overall sales numbers for movies sold since inception are close eventhough the Bluray has 4x the number of players when you include the PS3.

PS3 owners simply aren't using it as a movie machine and it will only diminish as more games are released for the PS3.

You must have me confused with a "Blu" shark. I stay clear of the smackdown forums.
