Sure is dropping fast now, nothing even close to the performance of Casino Royale.

Slight flaw in your logic is that you are comparing the pre-order activity of the Matrix, fully 2 months before it is released, to the launch-week rush of Casino Royale after its release.

Not exactly apples to apples is it?

The Matrix will do great on both HD DVD and BluRay. The key is for BluRay to get off their behinds and get their Java system working. Starting to irk me that it is now almost April and they still cannot get to work. Since I own both, I have tried a similiar system with HD DVD and it is awesome (FF:Toyko Drift). I would love to see this with BluRay movies. I think they could have done some really cool stuff if they had it for Casino Royale.

See this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=825185

Looks like BD-J is working great, with much more functionality currently available than Warner needs.

I can only speculate what Warner's true motive is in delaying BD titles.

Also I would add that the price of the box set is $80 on Amazon where these numbers come from. $80 for all three movies and that cool box set is actually very cheap.

If I was an HD-DVD owner I would certainly buy it.

Actually Casino Royale was in the teens while it was still a pre-order.

Not to mention he is also comparing an individual title vs. a boxset.

What is the highest ranked boxset sold to this point? Did the Mission Impossible set break the top 20, I know the individual title did but not sure about the set

I would also add that in spite of the Matrix on HD-DVD Blu-ray continues to lead all salesrank categories on Amazon, DVDempire, and the most critical Nielsen numbers.

Blu-ray's sales lead, according to Nielsen, is continuing to grow.

Also, Blu-ray now leads Amazon rankings in Germany and the UK.

And the war is over in Japan where Blu-ray has won.

For UK:http://www.eproductwars.com/dvd-uk/index.cfm
Top 10 ( 936 v. 1484)

For Germany: http://www.eproductwars.com/dvd-de/index.cfm
Top 10( 740 v. 1125)

For Japan: http://www.eproductwars.com/dvd-jp/index.cfm
Top 10 ( 216 v. 3626)

For the US: http://www.eproductwars.com/dvd/index.cfm
Top 10 (249 v. 559)
HD DVD had 4 titles in the top 50.

If you look at the trend line for all four sites it appears that HD DVD is moving up, not down - which would indicate gaining momentum (even in Japan). If you see the US, HD DVD in the first week that they have releases that match BD are doing pretty well in the US. If they can get the releases flowing the market share will take care of itself

The total stock for all Amazon locations outside the US is very small - in the hundreds!

You do know that the Matrix is not available on DVDEmpire (AFAIK). And it will not show up on Neilson until it goes on sale.

FWIW. How high did the pre-orders of the PoC go to?

Word.

A few other important points:

This is an $85 title. The profit on each unit is likely 3 times that of the profit on each casino royale title sold.

These movies have been released on SD many times, in normal versions, box sets with extended special features, so most people are double dipping at that.

Also, were talking ultimate edition. It's gonna be hard to rank this one because some people are gonna buy the regular edition too. There won't be one ranking for both films.

Why don't all you blu-ray fanboys find something better to do with your time. It is so sad that people are on here quibbling over which titles will sell the most. Who cares. The fact is, HD-dvd is not dead. That's all you need to know. Move on, thank you.

Taken from the HD DVD Matrix thread.

Good deal on the Ultimate Matrix Collection...

http://whv.warnerbros.com

Use coupons...
USD and WBNEWS (also free shipping over $60)

Ultimate is $74.xx (slightly less than amazon after 10% off)

(btw- Trilogy is $70.xx after discounts and such)

Hopefully people waiting for the BD Matrix will get the same deal.

I agree that HD-DVD may survive for several years to come. However if it does it will remain a niche format that does not offer movies from all the major studios. Anyone who thinks that Sony will ever release on HD-DVD is living a fantasy.

And in the latest Nielsen it just gets worse for HD-DVD. (thanks to asj2006 for the great graph!)



Second place is still second place.

My next prediciton: even when Nielsen releases numbers for the week of May 22 Blu-ray will still outsell HD-DVD that week.

It will likely be cheaper since the BD's wont be combo discs.

You do realize that HD DVD had a very light release schedule for Q1 and only now are we seeing a slow ramp up of titles. So the past three weeks no doubt would reflect this in HD DVD sales v. BD. Care to guess if sales of the week of 3/27 will be higher or lower than 18K units?

OTOH between the week of 3/4 and 3/11 HD DVD had a 172% growth, compared to 165% growth for BD during that week. So, HD DVD showed higher growth during a period they had no releases, compared to the week BD released Casino Royale!

Don't know sir, but WB Blu-ray titles have been cheaper than their HD DVD counterpart. If I'm wrong about this, show me an example.

I'm sorry but 38 for a box set is very impressive.

I can show you tons but I'll just stick with Superman for now.... unless the HD-DVD version is a combo.... the Blu-Ray versions are on average $3 more expensive!

I'd like to see the tons of other examples.

You have Superman Returns BD which is a single sided disc and is cheaper than the combo HD DVD. The other Superman movies have the same MSRP, the HD DVD versions are not combo discs and the difference in price is due to the elevated % discount on the HD DVD MSRP offered by DVDEmpire.

Let me re-quote you again since you don't even know what your own statement was:

Your statement is inherently WRONG. Even if the MSRP is the SAME, then that means WB Blu-Ray titles are the SAME, not Cheaper as you stated. If I quoted the vendor price because it was lower for HD-DVD I apologize for saying HD-DVD was cheaper. At least I can own up to when I make a statement in error instead of trying to twist it around to make myself still look right.

Filmmixer works on this stuff and says he has done testing and there is an audible difference. But there are people who argue both ways. But then there are people who argue that 720p looks the same as 1080p and there would definitely be people who would argue that 1440x1080 looks the same as 1920x1080. By definition 16/48 from a 24/48 master isn't lossless. There is lossy transition and then the compression of 16/48 can be lossless, but it isn't lossless from a 24/48 master. So, what are you looking for? You want some scientific papers about how 16/48 and 24/48 do or don't sound the same?

This stuff reminds me of Aesop's fable with the fox and the grapes, where the fox couldn't get the grapes and so decided that they must be sour. Before HD DVD showed problems doing 24/48 lossless tracks I don't recall anybody on the HD DVD side arguing about 16/48 being as good. Now it seems that the tactics have changed and now higher than 16/48 is being downplayed. If there weren't bandwidth and/or space limitations causing this, I highly doubt all the rhetoric against doing the audio at the original bitdepth would be happening. If 16/48 is as good as 24/48, why don't the studios use 16/48 for the originals, instead of 24/48 being common?

I'm serious about wondering what you want HPforMe. Would it bother you if they started encoding the video at 1440x1080 instead of 1920x1080? If so, can you provide me proof that 1920x1080 is better?

--Darin


Entirely different arguement about video and you know it. No one argues about the fact that sound is much more subjective a process than video. No one can credibly argue that there is no discernible difference between 720p and 1080p for example. It is entirely a different matter when it comes to audio at this level because of the simple fact that those extra bits YOU have no idea what the encoders have done with them, if they're merely redundant, etc., period. The encoders would have to tell you how they dithered and then what exactly occured in the compression to the losseless format to give us the bit for bit identical claim.

Secondly, nice try to draw a false analalogy and then get me to chase a red herring.

You either answer and defend by provable fact your claim of Warner compromising content at 16/48 or else your claim is left wanting. Why don't you stick with your stronger argument: Warner should use pcm with 50 gb disks, period.

HD DVD Combo discs are more expensive than their Blu-ray counterparts.

What's so hard to understand about that? We are talking about HD DVD Combo discs and the Blu-ray version of particular movies.

The Lake House, The Departed, Happy Feet, The Fountain, Rumor Has It, Lady In Water, hell all of Warner Bros. HD DVD combo's are more expensive than the same movie on Blu-ray.

It's not a stretch to think that the future release of The Matrix on Blu-ray would have an MSRP that is $5 to $10 cheaper than the current HD DVD collection. If not, so be it.

Why would you drop it altogether? I'm here for movies and the format war is in distant second place/last place for me. As the Home Boy Shopping Network would say, Mo movies, Mo movies, Mo movies.

Lol, just like every thread, it eventually turns into a piss war between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray.

yep, it seems like people at AVS on BOTH sides just like sniping at each other.
Shoot, I said one thing I heard about the hd-a2 in regards to de-interlacing in another thread and got my head chewed off by some ignorant ass who didn't even know what I was referring to.

WHAT THE ^&%$ ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT DAVE MACK!!!!! THE A2 DOESN"T SCALE> IT DOESN"T HAVE TO BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME!!!

J/K..... thought I'd go extreme to inject some humor on it all. I'm sure we can all agree that if you got the cash... having both formats is the place to be right now.
