Default Blue Christmas for Blu-ray!!!

The report, titled "A Blue Christmas for Blu-ray," includes the following points:

Though Blu-ray and HD DVD are getting roughly the same number of mentions online, there are 46 percent more positive discussions about HD DVD than Blu-ray.

More than half of the discussions of either format were "neutral" neither positive nor negative. Blu-ray had equal proportions of positive and negative buzz (about 23.5 percent each), while HD DVD had a far greater proportion of positive buzz (14.2 percent negative vs. 32.9 percent positive).

Few posts focus on storage capacity and advanced interactivity, two features that would play to Blu-ray's advantage.

Sony's track record with Betamax and MiniDisc is making it an easy target for Blu-ray's online detractors.

Sony's inclusion of a Blu-ray player with the PS3 may have backfired: Some gamers were unhappy that it drove up the player's cost and pushed them into the Blu-ray camp.

.....and yet Blu-Ray is dominating in disc sales. Even neutral titles like The Departed and Happy Feet are landslides in favor of Blu-Ray.

Kudos for boosting HD-DVD, but that's an old report. The christmas they are referring to is 2006. =)

He was speaking about about actual disc sales that are in favor of Blu-ray, not reviews on this site.

Maybe it's all the die-hard HD DVD fanboys making all the negative discussions towards Blu-ray??
