Sony is challenging the accuracy of the recent survey taken by Harris saying that more Americans owned HD-DVD players than Blu-ray players.

Sony's reasoning behind their disagreement is the results do not line up with the actual shipping and sales numbers they have for Blu-ray players.

"Some people believe a DVD player on an HDTV is high-def..."Everybody makes mistakes" he said of the Harris survey "but we have models that show those numbers just can't be true."

Sony also noted that just 50 days before the end of HD DVD format, Toshiba sold less than 1 million units.
