Not sure how much longer the HD-DVD camp can hold on, as the sales for early 2008 were pretty much dominated by Blu-Ray
Early 2008 numbers reported by Home Media Magazine show HD-DVD sold just 15 percent of high-definition disc sales during the first couple of weeks of January. Even worse, not a single movie in the same week's top ten HD sales list was HD-DVD; Blu-ray dominated the chart.

The bottom line here is the "war" isn't technically over yet, and the HD-DVD camp still has some big name followers, such as Microsoft, Universal, and Paramount.

Although, a large percentage is unofficially declaring Blu-Ray as the winner. Only time will tell though...
