HD DVD Group corrects report in HMM

HD DVD Group corrects report in HMM Yesterday, the HD DVD Promotional Group took steps to correct an erroneous report published by Home Media Magazine. The report claimed that the HD DVD camp was planning to release 800 new titles by the end of the year, a number that is apparently very wrong.
The report gave a monthly listing of title counts from May to December of this year, but the numbers increased exponentially with a total of 500 titles planned for the fourth quarter of this year alone.

Aware of the report, the HD DVD Promotional Group announced that the number was incorrect. The group instead said they were hoping for a global total of 600 titles for the year and that those expectations were "conservative".

The Home Media Magazine publication also incorrectly reported on the amount of Blu ray titles for 2007, saying that the total would be 43. There have already been 160 titles released in the US so far this year with many more planned.

600 high quality HD DVD titles this year is a very very nice little (!?) collection.

600 is good, but I still need more selection. I waited a long time for The Godfather to hit DVD. I really don't feel like waiting again for the classics.
