    HD DVD strides ahead of Blu-ray in player sales
    Market research company The NPD Group has revealed that in a comparison of the first six weeks of sales for HD DVD and Blu-ray, HD DVD hardware (pictured) eclipsed BD by 33 percent. But even together, both formats barely registered on the overall US sales charts; six weeks worth of HD kit made up a mere 0.4 percent of US disc player shipments. The lion’s share comprised standard DVD players, with DVD recorders contributing 13.4 percent. ​

    Theres already another thread on this, but nice to see that Av Zombie mysteriously managed to miss this section

    "However, the report also compared the sales performance during a six-week period ending July 29, during which both formats were in stores. Based on that time frame, Blu-ray led the next-generation market with a 54 percent share of hardware units sold and a 69 percent revenue share, according to NPD data."

    Quite important to the context of the original article.

    As is the bit after that which adds that only for the three weeks of those six did BluRay actually lead (imemdiately following the Samsung BDP1000 release). After that it reverted to HD DVD back in front.

    The original thread is here.
