A record number of HD-DVD players were sold, but I'm a little surprised by the numbers: http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/s...d_Toshiba_HD_DVD_Player_Sales_Top_90,000/1150 I think that gives you an indication of how small this market still is. Reportedly Blu-ray sales caught up with HD-DVD standalone sales in the summer. Since this gives us an idea of Blu-ray's best seller, that means around half a million players have probably been sold this year from each camp. This best explains why Toshiba lowered it's earlier estimates of about 3 million players to sell down to about 1 million to sell this year. It's good news for Toshiba, this nearly doubled Blu-ray's sales I'm sure. Even still, it feels disappointing for both.
