The blu-ray.com Web site is not affiliated with the Blu-ray Disc Association and therefore operates independently from the "companies who sell the devices." The official Web site of the BDA is blu-raydisc.com. You're not the only one who has been confused by this, but it nonetheless discredits your argument quite a bit. Although it's an unofficial website, of course it's going to be biased, but they don't falsify information. They're just eager to report good news for Blu-ray ASAP. Since I know this won't be sufficient proof for you, here are three completely separate, unbiased websites showing how Blu-ray is outselling HD-DVD everywhere in all possible ways:

LMAO - "who cares"? That was a quote from an article for which YOU provided a link, remember? You were trying to say the article showed how poorly PS3's were selling, when we all know the main reason they didn't sell better for Xmas 2006 wasn't for a lack of demand, but rather a lack of product. The quote I gave from that article essentially showed how those who couldn't get the PS3 were busy buying up PS2's, which means that there's still plenty of demand for PlayStation products.

ONCE AGAIN, NEITHER AM I!!
It doesn't bother me when someone here disagrees with my stance on something, because I participate in forums to hear different points of view. For example, MadMind seems to be in favor of HD-DVD, so he gives links to articles that clearly represent his position and he makes quotes that represent the article's actual intentions, and I respect that. He doesn't choose quotations that are deliberately misleading like you did with saying that "nobody is really dying to buy a PS3" and leaving it at that as if the general public doesn't want to buy a PS3, when what the article was actually saying is that nobody has literally died trying to acquire a PS3. Things like that bother me, and you do things like that a lot. Beer Moon, you make straw-man arguments with no substance or relevance to back them up, which is surprising coming from a member who has as many posts as you do in this forum.
