Thumbs up Blu-ray Getting SMACKED DOWN on Amazon.com

NDP revealed that HD DVD players are in the lead, and looking on Amazon.com we can see one reason why. Out of the top 15 "DVD Players" HD DVD holds five spots, while Blu-ray has zero.

#1 -- Toshiba HD-A2
#7 -- Toshiba HD-A30
#9 -- Toshiba HD-A20
#12 - Toshiba HD-A35
#13 - Toshiba HD-XA2

Here are the top five Blu-ray players.

#24 - Samsung BD-P1400
#27 - Panasonic DMP-BD10AK
#31 - Sony BDP-S300
#63 - Samsung BD-P1200
#?? - Sony BDP-S500 (not even in the Top 100 DVD Players)

So they've sold 5 and Blu-Ray has only sold one?

Amazon has surely helped HD-DVD sell more than Blu-Ray the last couple of months...

oh wait, the opposite has happened hasn't it?

With the amount of PS3's out there I sure would hope to hell that more Blu-ray discs were being sold!

Don't worry though, I'm sure that the same trends will continue for a little while: HD-DVD will sell more standalones, and Blu-ray will sell more discs.

You have all those players as the top sellers, yet HD DVD can't even win in software sales. Those HD DVD players must make good coffee coasters because obviously nobody is buying any software to play on them

Like they have been for the last couple of months in which Blu-Ray has sold more stand alones than HD-DVD has?

It's a sad day in HDDVDVille, Mighty Toshiba has struck out.
