Default Sony Inadvertedly Reveals Declining BD Sales

Quote:
Yes, both are trending downward -- with Blu-ray dropping more sharply than HD DVD.

Now, you can call this just the standard post Christmas drop. But is it? The Christmas season is the high sales point for consumer electronics and big-ticket items ... but movie purchases don't exactly fall into this category. A lot of people went out and bought PS3s and standalone HD players for Christmas. But it seems that after the initial rush wore off, they lost interest in buying new movies for those players.

When you realize that additional players are continually being sold after Christmas, the drop in movie sales is even more worrisome. A new format being adopted is supposed to see sales rising, not dropping.

Inadvertently? Seems pretty intentional to me.

You posted this in the wrong forum (should be in sales) and this has already been discussed in at least two other threads:

mods, please either delete or merge.

Already a thread about it. Two of them actually, in the appropriate forum.

Why don't all the HD-DVD fanboys start a new thread each with the post which shows that Blu-ray is still outselling HD-DVD with 2:1? How many threads do you want? It looks like you think 3 is not enough for the exact same information. The thread in the correct sub-forum is open for debate. Use it!

It's only the "small time" section because HD DVD fans hate going there.

Anybody can go to the sales sub forums. It is not Blu only. The fact is that there was a recent rule that is supposed to result in a 3 day ban on folks creating sales threads in this area of the forum. There were already two other threads on this and the OP did not even bother to do a search. Now we have three threads all talking about the same thing. Nobody is trying to muzzle anybody....
