Once again the tides have apparently shifted in the next-gen disk wars. Is anyone really surprised? As soon as one claims to have the lead, someone else comes out with a reason that the other one has reclaimed it. I keep hoping to wake up one morning to find that one of them has just given up and died already. Sadly that’s not the case.
According to Home Media Research there have been over 1 million Blu-ray disks have been sold to date. The report also stated that 70% of the disks sold in the first three months were Blu-ray.
That’s a pretty big number to hit, but tomorrow we’ll hear the story of how one some company has decided to purchase a million HD DVDs and hand them out to the poor, effectively giving HD DVD the lead. Then Blu-ray will sign a deal with McDonald’s to sell Ronald McDonald cartoons for $3 each the next day, and so on.
