Format wars are bad for consumers, but it looks like they’re not too fun for the industry either. According to recent sales figures from Nielsen VideoScan, the number 10 best selling high-def disc “Babel” sold a whopping 880 copies. That’s fewer people than attended our high school.
The best selling high-def disc since the format launched is Scorsese’s “The Departed” on Blue-Ray with 38,993 total copies. For what it’s worth, it does seem that Blu-ray is winning, but its obviously much too early to call it. —MEGHANN MARCO
