Wow

Clearly, the European number includes the 500K give away Casino Royale's (That's a joke folks - a certain side usually accuses Sony with including give aways and games in their totals.)

Very impressive Sony!

That's good I guess...I just wish all high def sales were doing better.
If we'd have had one format, sales wouldn't be this slow on both formats.

Does anyone know if Toshiba or any other Maufacturer had any major announcements today? I can't find any anywhere!

I love Blu-Ray and while I see this war raging for at least another year Blu-Ray will win!

The technology has way more up side than HD-DVD because it has been developed better and has way too much backing to lose!

This does not suprise me. I was in Europe visiting some family over the summer and I saw Blu-ray in every eletronic store, even small local ones!!

Some asked if I knew anything about High Definition and I told them "no" (to see what they would say) and they told me that blu-ray was great and the next big thing in DVDs anyway.....HD-DVD was no where to be found.

The European DVD/HD market looks very BLU indeed from what I saw.

Abc Talker...the best website that I know of is HighDefDigest.com
They provide unbalanced HD news for both Blu-Ray and HD-DVD.
And they usually keep VERY up to date.

It's a damn shame with this format war in this new generation precluding any real sign of success with either formats. This has been going on for nearly two years now. TWO years. Click on this article:
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0NEW/is_1997_Oct_31/ai_19947124

That report was in the FIRST year of the NEW technology that we know of as.. DVD. 2 to FIVE HUNDRED titles in ONE year...in the U.S. Everybody, remember this: The Laser Disc was the future in Hi Def. This BR vs. HD-DVD fiasco will end in tears for both sides
