wow pointing to a site that on a regular basis goes oops
our numbers for BD where wrong and way lower then usual.
What next

Way lower? Amazon is wrong about how many they sell? You amaze me with that.
I have no idea what you are saying here. Unless you mean I linked a site showing BD is selling more. And that is true. As you stated below, partially because HD-DVD is behind on title releases ATM. And probably affected by the fact that PS3 owners got tired of playing Resistance and decided to buy a couple movies.
On the other hand there is a reason the HD DVD is slightly
lower there are no good new releases. If on the other
hand you compare the same title on BD and HDVD (let's
say the departed since it is on the same page you linked

The Departed [Blu-ray]
Price: $23.95


The Departed (Combo HD DVD and Standard DVD) [HD DVD]
Price: $27.95

As a combo disc it is well worth it for someone that wants to watch the movie but had no HD player. Well worth the extra $4. Will the Departed on Blu-Ray work on a SD player?

One example. The overall average is what I'm talking about.
someone with both players that wants the movie must pay
more for the HD DVD

now a third rate title that has been on the shelf for
almost a year like Serenity will be Serenity [HD DVD]
Price: $19.95

Third rate? Rubbish. BS!
but then you are comparing apples and oranges

the average price on HD DVD (as computed there) are a
bit lower but that is because it has in its mix a lot
more of mossy titles that no one is buying

Rubbish. BS!
Headed out of town for work. You will have to find someone else to convince that HD-DVD is pretty much dead. Which is Rubbish and BS!
