That said, I haven't really cared much about numbers lately, give me the content.. not the PR.

And I think Ruined is going to bust a nut over Amazon sales rank... even though a week ago it didn't matter at all.

Please link where I stated Amazon sales data was unimportant since you have mentioned me stating this two times in this thread.

Amazon ranks are very telling, in fact looking at theDVDwars "since inception" ranking graph paints a very clear picture of the directions the war has gone in thus far.

After seeing the sales report not too long ago and how poorly a lot of hi def movies are selling, it seems like it'll take forever for the format war to be resolved...or at least quite a while before hi-def is competitive with standard def DVDs.

True, supporting by buying is all well and fine. But to rally that support on a specific date all at once in an attempt to make a comeback? Odd I'd say.

You still get 'n' quantities pre-ordered no matter how you look at it, be it 'n' people pre-ordering randomly or at the same date as everyone else. If anything, the rally delayed the comeback since it kept a lot of people from placing a pre-order at the time Amazon accepted pre-orders of Planet Earth.

Something I've been wondering -- what rank would The Matrix boxset would have had if Warner made available only one boxset and not two?

Well I mean if that thread is excited and pumped for all purchasing on one day, telling everyone else to also purchase on one day (including the people who weren't going to purchase at all), I think that would have a slightly higher effect than everything being spread out with no hype at all.

I guess the numbers at the end of the month will show what the deal is and if this thing even had an effect. Ruined is like a kid in a candy shop right now so I'm not going to ruin (no pun intended) his moment. Sorry for going off topic.
