BetaNews writes HD DVD sold three times as many discs as Blu-ray in August:
According to Nielsen data in August, HD DVD sold three times as many discs as any other high-definition format, including Sony's Blu-ray. In addition, the survey company also found that customers of the format owned an average of 8.4 DVDs.

The format already has a best seller: Universal's "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," which sold through 30 percent of its inventory in the first week alone. These numbers are sure to please studios that have selected the format, such as Universal and Warner Home Video.

Future titles include Warner's "V for Vendetta," releasing October 31, as well as "Superman Returns," "Mission: Impossible 3," "King Kong" and "Nacho Libre." By Christmas, an additional 150 titles are expected on top of the 80 already available, the most of any high-definition format.
