The fact is that in just under 3 months, the PS3 has managed to obliterate the volume advantage accrued by HD DVD over BD in 7 months.
That is pretty significant.
It's only significant as a talking point. Sure, I personally would rather that HD DVD was ahead of Blu-ray, but if the last few months have taught us anything it's that because overall volumes are so low, the direction of the format war can change on a dime. So today Blu-ray has the bravado. Tomorrow may be different. There are many unknowns and there are many surprises. As of right now, the list of unknowns that can drastically affect the war in HD DVD's favor include.
. Cheaper HD DVD players coming later this year
. Universal's release schedule, or a possible change in direction
. Fox's suspension of a number of titles
. The affect of the hackings
. BD-J problems, edge crackings, and other possible new technology issues
. The continuing and accumulated affect of the massive subsidizations. Whereas HD DVD is most likely operating comfortably in the black, Blu-ray is probably well into the red, operating a business model that demands they lose substantial money in order to gain market share.
IMHO, there are a lot of unknowns, and if you apply some insight into what is happening, then both sides would see scenarios where the bottom can fall out. The braggodocio might be fun because it's always fun to be winning, but just because you are winning does not at all mean that you have won anything, and history is replete with examples of entites who were supposedly winning ending up losing, and sometimes very badly. So you can jump up and down, and high five, and head butt each other, but the smart thing to do is to keep the champagne on ice and the cigars in the box until there is actually a winner.
