NPD Says Intent-to-Buy Blu-ray Grows

February 8, 2008 by · 21 Comments 

We see that Video Business is reporting that consumers are expressing more desire to purchase Blu-ray Disc players following Warner Bros. Entertainment’s swing to back Blu-ray exclusively, according to the NPD Group. While there is weak overall demand for both BD and HD DVD set-tops, NPD’s surveys do show diverging intent for BD and HD [...]

NPD Report on Player Sales January Week 4 Shows Roughly 2:1 in Favour of Blu-ray Disc

February 8, 2008 by · 1 Comment 

We read over at Twice Daily that ‘Blu-ray’s Lead Narrows’, though apparently they came to that conclusion by comparing to the report from two weeks ago. While Twice are stating that Blu-ray held 65% in week 4, and HD DVD held 28% (with roughly 6% for combos), my recollection of week 3 had HD DVD [...]

February 6, 2008 by · 9 Comments 

While Microsoft has ponied up and finally dropped the MSRP — down from the now archaic $179.99 — for the HD DVD add-on to $129.99, Best Buy is taking it one baby-step further by offering up the player for a mere $119.99. If you happened to miss the Amazon deal earlier this morning, then saddling [...]

Get ‘em while their hot, Amazon is selling the Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on drive for $79.99! You might want to get in on this deal fast, as they will probable sell out at this price. We wonder if this will happen at B&M retailers as well? Remember that you also get the 5 free [...]

Amazon HD DVD Sale: 103 Titles Included

February 4, 2008 by · 13 Comments 

HD DVD is beginning to bounce back on the Amazon sales charts — with a total of six titles in the top 10 selling high-def titles — thanks to an incredible ongoing sale on Universal titles.  The majority of the discs are $14.95 — combo discs are slightly more, naturally — which is an exceptional [...]

Confirmed: HD DVD Clearance Was Circuit City’s Screw Up

February 3, 2008 by · 8 Comments 

It looks like the whole "HD DVD Clearance" thing turned out to be another Circuit City pricing screw up. Some of you might remember picking up the Matrix Trilogy for $19.99 in a previous Circuit City screw up. Others might remember the BOGOF screw up they had the week Transformers was released. We also remember [...]

So Much For The 3 Week Delay, Invasion HD DVD On The Shelf At Best Buy

January 30, 2008 by · 33 Comments 

Even though Warner had planned a 3 week delay on the HD DVD version of ‘Invasion,’ it seems Best Buy and several other retailers didn’t get the memo. We didn’t pick it up since $34.99 is highway robbery for a title like this. We do wonder why on earth Warner would ship the HD DVD [...]

HD Media Player Sales Numbers for Jan Week 3

January 29, 2008 by · 23 Comments 

We read at DVD Town the 90% market share enjoyed by Blu-ray Disc players in the second week of January did not last into the third week. New numbers from NPD apparently indicate that after Toshiba cut 50% from the retail price of HD DVD players, the market share for Blu-ray was reduced to ‘only’ [...]

January 27, 2008 by · 45 Comments
