Sony says that Spider-Man 3 is their fastest selling Blu-ray to date, but has yet to release actual numbers. We're pretty sure this is bad news for the Blu-ray camp, as we don't think they'd hold back good news. The other reason to believe that the HD DVD camp has reason to gloat, is because on the first day, the Transformers DVD outsold the Spider-Man 3 DVD, by almost three-to-one. So we figure the sales for the first week are somewhere between Casino Royal (100k shipped)
and Transformers (190k)
. But we guess we'll have to wait until Friday's Nielsen numbers
to get a better picture of how things shaped up.
