    Do VCRs still out sell DVD players?
    I would think since VCRs have been around for twenty years most people who own them have bought the films they want on VHS, so they won't be buying them in great numbers anymore. If this is so, only recent films are really going to sell.
    So why aren't more catalog titles on DVD? Are DVD owners even interested in catalog titles?

    I believe last month was the first month that DVD players outsold VCRs so the tides are turning.

    We sure have come a long way from the days when there were only a total of 10 DVD movies on the shelf at Futureshop, a major Canadian retailer. What tough days those were.
