Blu-Ray stomping the competition

29 replies 2 views Edited Mar 15, 2007
Just wondering if you guys read a story imdb did yesterday saying that Casino Royale on Blu-Ray was in the top 10 on Amazon.com
This is the first time a high def format has cracked their top ten. I smell defeat for the poor other guy.

I have read several articles along those lines.
 
 
I will be picking up Casino Royale tomorrow.

Apparently Blu-Ray has been outselling HD-DVD about 3 to 1, which is awesome. And people questioned including it in PS3...HA.

ps3 is a factor in them selling so well now, until the price for players drops to $300 the ps3 is the cheapest player

Hmm maybe I'll have to think about getting a PS3 then But I heard the Blu-Ray on the PS3 doesn't look as nice as the standalone player, can anybody confirm this?

Like 25 years ago, people were saying the same thing about Betamax.....and we all know how that turned out.

Betamax outsold VHS for a while.....just like Blu-ray is now outselling HD-DVD.


I'm not going to buy any Blu-ray or HD-DVD discs/players until one clearly wins.

HD DVD was beating BetaMax with refgards to sales for about 9 months. Now it's being overthrown, by a 3 to 1 ratio. And, BD, as a format, as much more momentum.

Anyways, yesterday, when I checked Amazon, Casino Royale was at 8th.
