Just when Blu-ray fans thought they'd run away with it, the red camp strikes back with a 58/42 (1.38:1) split according to the Nielsen VideoScan numbers courtesy of Home Media magazine. The fun part is trying to figure out what everyone bought. Looking at the top ten list, we can only assume that all those new HD-A2 owners have finally started buying movies -- either that or everyone went out and bought a second copy of Planet Earth. The most interesting thing, is that even though HD DVD almost sold as many titles as Blu-ray, only three made the top ten, and none of them were released the same week. This tells us that a lot of people bought a wide array of titles, which is good news for red. This isn't the best they've done since we've been tracking, in fact when Transformers was released it was 51/49. We can't wait to check out the numbers next week, to see if red's new legs can hold up against the latest installment of Pirates.
