Default Nostradamus Game for October 21, 2007

This installment of the Nostradamus Game brings one of the most anticipated releases of the year. Not only does the release of Transformers dominate every discussion about this week's sales numbers, but the week's nationwide (in the US) buy one get one free sale for Blu-ray has thrown a spanner in the works. This week's Nostradamus Game should be fun!

btw - I'm guessing that at least some will predict a sales ratio in favor of HD DVD. Since this will be the first week where such predictions are likely please be sure to accurately state which format will carry the higher sales, either by colouring your ratios or by stating the higher selling format (i.e. "64:36 HD DVD" for an HD DVD win or "64:36 Blu-ray" for a Blu-ray win). Also, please number your top ten predictions. Thank you!

This week's releases on Blu-ray:
  • AC/DC: Live at Donington (Sony BMG)
  • Hollow Man (Director's Cut) (Sony)
  • The Invisible (Buena Vista)
  • Masters of Horror: Season One - Vol. One (Starz)
  • Masters of Horror: Season One - Vol. Two (Starz)
  • The Reaping (Warner)
  • Return to House on Haunted Hill (Warner)

This week's releases on HD DVD:
  • A Mighty Heart (Paramount)
  • The Reaping (Warner)
  • Return to House on Haunted Hill (Warner)
  • Transformers (DreamWorks)

Enjoy and good luck!

I think this might be the one week HD-DVD wins in all of 2007....

It would really suck for HD-DVD though if "The Invisible" pushes Blu-ray over the top anyways....

I think it is going to be incredibly close, but I'm picking Blu-ray to win the week. I think the BOGO will bring a lot of Blu-ray sales - even pushing POTC into the top ten. While most of the titles in the top ten will be new releases, I think the BOGO will bring enough sales of various other titles to push the overall sales ratio in favor of Blu-ray. I'm feeling pretty good about my 52:48 Blu-ray prediction but I'm very sketchy about my top ten picks.
