Default Why not 37 Warner titles in the HD-DVD BOGO sale??

I meant the mention "37 WARNER titles" in the title of the thread. Sorry.
I'm putting this in the HD-DVD specific forum for a reason.
Up until now I didn't have believed the hype about Warner going Neutral soon.
HOWEVER, with the clear Advantage being given to the BLU fans in the most recent AMAZON BOGO sale, it seems like Warner is trying to accomplish something.
For the HD-DVD sale amazon only offered 4 Warner titles. For Blu-Ray, they are offering about 37 Warner titles.
WHY?????
Conspiracies can be made quite easily for both sides. I'm just wondering what HD-DVD fans think.
If you'd like to debate this in Smackdown, I will have opened a forum there as well. Just to keep the Blu fanboys out of this forum.

Maybe the BDs aren't selling as well? I really have no idea.

Or MAYBE, they're re-releasing them all on Blu with Profile 1.1 Special Features :lol:

What? Do you mean Warner ENDING their neutrality? I personally think that you are grasping at straws and that there is absolutely no significant reason for the difference.

If you want to string this into conspiracy therories about Warner going Neutral, you should reconsider. But in keeping with your theory, my response is:

A.) They are clearing out their Blu-ray titles in anticipation of their HD DVD only support.

or

B.) They realized that the only way they can sell non-high profile Blu-rays is with a BOGO.

This should really be in smackdown since it's a discussion of both formats.

What do you mean by Warner going neutral? They're the only studio that is neutral now, and has been since they started releasing HD media (although they seem to have been leaning towards HD DVD a bit, with some exclusive titles and special features).

I must have been half asleep when I wrote this crap.
I appologize for my pathetic lack of editing.

Depends on if the sale emanates from Warner's or is it just Amazon? If it's Amazon, maybe the catalog titles don't sell as well on Blu so they just want to move inventory.

It's probably that simple. Nothing to read into it.
