Toshiba sells nearly 90,000 HD DVD players over the weekend

By on
Remember that HD DVD player sale over at Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and a few other brick and mortar outlets last week? Well, apparently it dramatically pumped the formatís installed base with about 90,000 stand-alone HD DVD players sold over the weekend Ė most of them were last year's entry level HD-A2, which sold for $99.

By comparison, Sonyís best-selling stand-alone Blu-ray disc player, the $499 BDP-S300, has moved 100,000 units since its introduction during the summer. But despite the weekend surge in HD DVD player sales, the Blu-ray camp is reportedly still leading the next-gen format war in terms of both hardware and software, due largely to the millions of PlayStation 3 hardware sold.
