US Blu-ray Sales Reach 9 Million

Now after HD DVD is out and the format war is over, a research in the US shows Blu-ray disc sales have topped nine million since inception, with some three million of those discs flying off the shelves in 2008. The figures, published by Home Media Research, show average weekly sales of BD titles ranging from between 200,000 and 300,000. Big-sellers, such as the recent No Country For Old Men release, helped weekly sales reach 319,000, with the disc itself selling 68,000 copies in the week ending March 16th. The second place is for the Hitman title, who sold twice as low or 38,000 copies.Source: LATEST

Does it just stop after he tells the story about his dad or was my copy of the movie bad?

No country for old men is one of those movies that tries too hard to be different in the ending. Makes the film a bad movie overall.

I'm still very happy with my ps3 and Blu Ray player.

Blu-Ray movies are awesome. I can tell a huge difference between normal DVD and Blu-Ray. In fact, Shooter with Mark Wahlberg is awesome.

^^ well I would hope so... If I'm honest the copies of both HD-DVD and BluRay don't impress me much, some of the features on teh 300 HD-DVD were cool though... That didn't come out on BluRay did it?
