NPD: Sky Isn't Falling for HD-DVD, Blu-ray Isn't Champ Yet
>> From dailygame.net:
 Quote:

Sales data for HD-DVD and Blu-ray players and movies has been misconstrued lately by various outlets, with reports implying that HD-DVD sales have fallen at an amazing pace while Blu-ray sales have blasted through the roof.

The NPD Group attempted to quiet the storm of online scuttlebutt with the following statement:
"The facts are that during the week that is being singled out, both Blu-ray disc players and software were being given away for free with the purchase of 1080p TVs. It is also important to note that the instant rebate promotions that had previously netted Toshiba's players' MSRPs to $199 and $249 had actually ended on Jan. 5th -- causing an increase in HD DVD's MSRP back to $299 and $399 during that same week. Since Toshiba's retail price move on Jan. 13th to $149 / $199 -- Toshiba is seeing very positive sales trends at retail. This reinforces the fact that price is a significant driver of sales."
"Toshiba's HD DVD players represent a significant value to the consumer and the marketing campaign that just began is proving effective."

Well, Netflix just went Blu-ray only

http://netflix.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=265

I really thought this was going to last another few years. At this point, I don't think it'll last months.

As an HD DVD supporter, I really think this is the end for Toshiba. I have about 6 HD DVDs that I own so I am not that far into it (maybe $400 altogether).

I do want High Def, but i'll be waiting for the blu-ray 2.0 profile players.

When NetFlix starts selling off their HD-DVD stock, I may pick up a few titles, of course, since HD-DVD rentals was the primary reason for me signing up for NetFlix, I may not be a member by that time (end of 2008)....

At this point, my HD-DVD player cost me $16 since I got in at $98 (plus tax) and sold off 4 of my 5 free movies. I have that one free movie still, and a few others that I picked up on the cheap. I really like my player for the upconversion, even though I had a good upconverting DVD player before, so I really don't feel like I am out much. What will really stink is when Blu-Ray prices come down and I am ready to go that route and Sony will probably force manufacturers to drop any HD-DVD compatability and I will be sitting with 2 players at home.
