According to NPD, sales of Blu-ray standalone players plummeted 40 percent from January to February, then rose a scant 2 percent from February to March. The general consensus was that once Toshiba dropped its support for the HD DVD format early this year, sales would increase.

In fact, sales of Blu-ray standalone players remain so low that NPD has not yet released actual numbers, for fear that it would be easy to identify individual retailers.

 Grin

who would have thought that while in a recession, when you raise {incomplete} hardware prices, discontinue software BOGOs, have no competition, and then cutback release schedules to boot,  that sales will plummet.

PS3 doing well but stand-alone sales are awful.  Given we're probably looking at a year minimum before Blu-Ray gets its legs and download news is posted almost daily...  Don't Know

Could be HDM is DOA.
