| This does NOT support the notions that (1) Amazon isn't representative when sales figures are concerned, and (2) a bunch of guys planning a group-buy can make all the difference. |
I find the double-negative above to be confusing. That said, I still contend that Amazon is, on the whole, not representative of HD optical media sales. And I do think it can be easily influenced by 'buy days' as Brett said.
I see this simply as the case of the best-selling HD optical media title is also the best-selling HD optical media title on Amazon. Kind of like when The Matrix in SD was the best-selling, I imagine it was the same on Amazon.
Frankly, all this talk of sales figures as they relate to which format is out-performing the other is really starting to wear thin with me. I know we weren't exactly
going down that road.
I think we should just be happy some titles are doing well regardless of the flavor. Any progress is good, IMO.
