Shark Tank HD and Smokin Aces!?, what are those titles doing that high on the list. And another interesting thing is that so many bought Casino Royale, even though it was bundled with many PS3's.

HD DVD is doing so poorly, early adopters should get out now...why support an obviously failing format?

Casino Royale is number 1 even if it came with the 500k first PS3 units in Europe. Looks like Blu-ray either got a lot more stand-alones in Sweden or that new PS3 owners see the PS3 as a good Blu-ray player. I think both is true for Sweden. It's hard to find a HD-DVD player of any kind in stores here in Sweden. You can almost always find a Blu-ray player in bigger stores that sell CE.

Blu Ray had one hell of a boost with the PS3. Anything other than total dessimation atm would be a huge failure on Blu Rays part.

So a victory would be a failure just because it wasn't big enough?

HD-DVD are almost non-existent here. The few people that do own a HD-DVD player are XBox fans that went for the cheap option with the HD-DVD add-on. Stand-alone sales are really small but if one format have the upper hand it's Blu-ray.
