Default BD vs HD, Boxsets vs Individual Films

(Note: I'm basing all of this on Amazon data, so it's not the most accurate representation, but I still thought it was interesting.)

For some reason the Blu-Ray versions of the Harry Potter and Blade Runner boxsets are ranked much higher than the HD DVD versions, yet for the individual titles of Blade Runner and the Order of the Phoenix, the HD DVD versions outrank the Blu-Ray versions.

I've been rechecking this for a couple of weeks now, and it's been that way the entire time, and I seem to recall the Blade Runner sets being ranked similarly when they were first announced over the summer. Care to take a guess at why?

Here are the current rankings:

HP Boxset

BD - 172
HD - 208

HP: OotP

HD - 124
BD - 184

Blade Runner Ultimate Collector's Edition

BD - 595
HD - 910

Blade Runner

HD - 246
BD - 264

Wth, my links work fine when I preview the post. Screw it, I'll get rid of the links and just post the numbers.

im going to make the comment that maybe thats because BD owners are not cheap and will hence be more likely to buy a box set, while people who needed a 100 dollar player wont drop 100+ on a box set.
