HD DVD has the most VC-1 titles, and the highest majority of VC-1 titles. The rumor that most of the Blu-ray discs use VC-1 as a primary compression is false.
HD DVD's argument is true. They do use VC-1 more.

Moderators feel free to delete this topic if you wish. I just wanted to let people know some tidbits.
Why is this still interesting now the format war is bascially over?
Anyway you should probably add in some perspective to these numbers. MPEG2 codecs have been steadily decreasing while both AVC (the best codec IMO) and VC-1 (second best) have been steadily rising the past year. Anyway where have you heard that rumor? I've never heard it anywhere and I've been reading a lot of HD DVD and Blu-ray the past months.
And why not throw in the stats about audio codecs where Blu-ray have the clear advantage?
