300 becomes best-selling HD movie to date

I'm currently impartial in the HD disc format wars. Until one is declared a winner, or close to it, I'm likely not going to jump on the bandwagon. For me it's a matter of cost, I don't want to drop a grand or more on equipment and movies that could be potentially rendered useless in the coming years. Perhaps that's just a little influence from my uncle that was a huge Betamax supporter. Regardless of which side you choose, there's no denying that HD discs are steadily becoming more popular.

This has been outlined by the sales of Blu-ray and HD DVD versions of the movie 300. It was released by Warner Home Video, who is also impartial in the battle of the formats and since its release on July 31 has sold over 250,000 copies. This makes it the fastest and highest-selling HD title to date.

Unfortunately, as Warner Home Video is not picking sides, they're also not telling us which format sold more copies. Frankly, I think that knowing those figures could give us some great insight into just how well each is doing.
