GamePro.com: New facts concerning the sales figures of the Xbox 360′s HD DVD drive may breathe new life into Toshiba’s proprietary format just yet.
A piece on U.K.’s CNET reports that Microsoft has so far sold 155,000 HD DVD drives for the Xbox 360 in that country, making it the console’s “biggest-selling accessory”.
However, the company refrained from revealing statistics of how well their product is selling worldwide. But according to the same report, other regions of the world may actually end up being HD DVD’s saving grace.
Even if Blu-ray eventually becomes the industry standard for the U.S., the site hypothesizes that other sections in the world, such as the U.K. and the rest of Europe, may end up embracing HD DVD simply due to the cheaper costs involved with manufacturing its discs.
