Thanks very much for the response.
With the absence of Wal-Mart statistics, that's a significant gap in sales results. So, with Warner expressing its intention of carefully considering the fourth quarter sales results before deciding whether to go format exclusive, do you have an opinion on where they are going to obtain credible sales data?
I suppose it would be in Toshiba's interest to directly provide Warner with player sales results. Microsoft could likewise provide stats on XBox sales. I wonder whether the other competing HD DVD exclusive studios would provide them with their respective HD DVD disc sales? One thing we know for sure is that Warner knows how much of its HD DVD discs sold.
