Default Next week's numbers way down?

Anyone else curious to see what is going to happen to the HDM market next week? There are some catalog titles being released (Kubrick, anyone) and Blu has Meet the Robinsons D&D, and of course Sopranos S6 is coming out

Still, with all of the fervor surrounding the sales this week and the Transformers purchases, I'm wondering if we will see some of the lowest numbers for HDM total sales next week. People may be purchased out of the game for a while. Maybe it won't be completely quiet, but I don't see lots of consumers dipping into the already released catalog titles for a little while (I know that once I've paid sales prices for something, it's tough to go back to regular pricing for a bit...)

Thoughts?

I bought 7 movies this week and put in a preorder for clockwork orange and the shining on blu-ray. So I really dont plan on buying any this week.

Thinking one or two titles, but on of those will probably be a purchase from a person.

Indeed, one of my most anticipated titles for the year. Hopefully this is one of the movies that WB remastered recently.

Yeah. Tough to stick by my guns on 2001. I'm doing my best not to repurchase any of my DVD titles unless and until I get review confirmations that there is a significant PQ/AQ upgrade. Even then I'm pretty picky (easy to be when you're as broke as I am at the moment...)

I know absolutely without a doubt that the HD DVD/BD of this simply cannot be anything but a VAST improvement over the original MGM DVD I own. Can't wait!

Ack... I really want Meet the Robinsons, but I doubt I'll be able to afford it what with the Blu-Ray B1G1 sale, and Christmas coming up.... not to mention a TON of my friends having birthdays in October and November

I'm really looking forward to the flight into the monolith on a 60 inch screen in high def
