    No I know, but it's the closest thing I found. I was trying to remember what site I was wanting to search, but couldn't figure out what it was.

    The split of all HDM sales for the last 12 months or so have averaged 68% BD and 32% HD-DVD - I believe there have been some surge months from HD-D where they've done closer to 60/40 (but months before it there were several 70/30's.

    The recent announcement from Warner concerning a May 2008 changeover to BD exclusive is not great news for HD-D, but it's also not gloom and doom as it still has to actually happen and even if it does, there's still a decent amount of HD-D support (from exclusives to dual format support).

    I'm not really worried - I'll either switch to a dual format player (like the Samsung U5000 I had on order) or add a BD player or PS3 and continue to enjoy my existing HD titles while I add BD titles to our collection :)

    Yea, it's not like it's the end of the world if one goes under since they have the dual format players now. How much do they run nowadays?

    i have heard at least 4 ot 5 big time movies will be released on blu ray exclusively so unfortunately even though i can't answer the q, it looks like blu ray will ultimately win. There goes my excuse for buying a 360.

    You don't need an excuse to get a 360, there are much better games for 360 than there are for PS3.

    :D Sorry, for the most part people are much more impressed with the game selection regarding 360 over PS3.

    (What kind of games are you into? To keep this from getting too off topic, you can PM me if you like.)

    Essentially both formats look very good, it's just that Blu-Ray has the backing of more distributors.

    lol I know, but I'm more into games like... Devil May Cry... Heavenly Sword... God of War... Those kind of game! Which the 360 hardly has :p I'm sure I'll be fine next year when Ninja Gaiden 2 comes out... and DMC4.

    To keep this on topic... I remember seeing a site with Blu-ray to HD-DVD ratios... I can't remember where it was, I'll try and find it.

    My numbers above are an aggregate from the major statistical sources who maintain this sort of information, so they're reasonable accurate.

    Though then (and now) I was drinking something the wife made so I wasn't 100% sure what I posted...

    :lol:

    kx5: did you not read the posts? BLU-RAY IS DOMINATING, stop bing a hd-dvd fanboy please. open your eyes.

    lol at the blu-ray.com article post, i didnt read it im sure its biased, at least a little anyways, ill take a look at it in a moment.

    a dual-format player was close to $1000 last time i checked and you can get a blu-ray player for around 300 bucks now and probably a cheap HD-DVD player for around 500 bucks so i really see no point in the dual-format one lol, just buy both and stack them!

    concerning the brief off-topic discussion, i too am having trouble finding a game i like for my 360 besides what i already own. im going to buy unreal tournament 3 or heavenly sword tomarrow i think.

    the only way HD-DVD could win is the porn industry. porns are being released on HD-DVD cause its cheaper, just like the betamax/VHS war, Betamax was way better but i watched a clip on how much the porn industry influenced that by releasing on them on VHS cause it was cheaper. but the porn industry is dieing out, well at least it should be now a days, i dont actually have any stats nor do i care to look at any but with the internet im sure its not as big as it used to be. its disgusting that porn can influence something like this so heavily.

    anyways, blu-ray ftw! i just want to say that i love HD movies, they are amazing, not only the picture, but the new features on blu-ray discs are awesome, just the simple stuff like bookmarking parts ina movie and saving them lol, im easily ammused!
