I don't believe that it was an "Amazon day." It was simply an HD DVD day, and people were free to purchase them from wherever they pleased, as it was a day to support the format itself.

The guys on AVS wanted it to be a day for Amazon only. So that's what they told me by PM....

Here's one example of what they think of the independent dealers.

While many of us wishes to support the independent retailers, there often isn't much of a way to judge the magnitude and volume of movies sold on a particular day. It also doesn't have as much ability to make a statement. If we end up buy 700+ movies from a smaller independent retailer, nobody in the buisness world really cares. But once you spike sales numbers on sites like Amazon that do a high volume of buisness, it all of a sudden has peoples' attention.
