I agree with you.... My point was to debunk your 3x the content comment. Never once did I say Universal was going to release more than all Blu-Ray's exclusives, I also think the quality of content on BD's exclusive side is better. I just listed their home distribution rights numbers. Comeon man... give in a little from your bravado and just admit the 3x the content comment was a bit absurd.

Yeah, I knew that might come up. Fox has sold the rights to a lot of those. Owning the library and owning distribution rights are two different things. MGM is another studio that has sold a lot of it's library to Sony and Warner over the years. You also cannot go by DVD numbers, they could have had the rights at the time it was released on DVD and since lost them and DVD numbers also count all formats, incuding Widescreen, Fullscreen, Collectors Editions, Double Dips, etc.
