Yes, Spiderman has a much broader appeal. I know of adults who loved the Spidey's. I don't know of any adults age 30 and above who saw Turdformers. I'm sure there were some, but none of my friends did.
Put the blu-ray in the f@*{'n basket. I'll hurt your poodle mister.

Even if it doesn't, does it really change anything?

totally agreed even i don't think spidey3 alone (not box-set) will sell newhere near what transformers did the sales will be good when combined with box-set and alone but i've got a feeling its gonna sell less than transformers.
Pirates and Simpsons on the other hand

and even i h8ed spidey 3 when i watched it in the cinemas but once u watch it in blu that changes it mate now i like spidey 3 and i don't think ppl will buy it alone i wouldn't have either after watching it in cinemas i was gonna get the other 2 neways dats y i got the box-set and i certainly don't regret buying it

Spiderman 3 is a dissapoint for alot of people, so i dont say it can beat transformers individually. The box set is worth it, but taking account the price, it wont beat transformers either, but both combined might, maybe....190,000 is a fu*k load of HD DVD's. And also in my opinion, the simpsons isnt a MUST HAVE and niether is pirates, spiderman is the must have.

We are huge blu supporters in this house in fact we own 2 blu-ray players but I have to strongly disagree that spiderman 3 is better than transformers.

I know it's a personal opinion but I wouldn't waste my money on any of the 3 spiderman movies. But in all fairness as much as we loved transformers we refuse to buy it until it comes out in blu.

I donot think it will but even if it does this is not the important title being done right now. It is a Sony title, they will not be going anywhere. And the PS3 bundle will actually hurt the sales of the movie. Since most freebe things donot have a sku and will be counted as PS3's sold.

The more important movie comes one week later. That is Ratatouille. Disney will not go any place but if it can sell alot of movies then it looks better for Blu. And it might just get them to open up the vault earlier, that is if they can get movies ready. If familys need to buy Blu to watch Disney that is when the tide will really turn. Not to mention the impact on kids. Why do you think McDonalds is still around? Very easy it is called Happy Meals. Get a child started at a young age and you have them for life.

I dont think the dvd sales will come close to TF, but with the base of blu-ray owners Spider-man should do 200k easy. The only setback might be the sales number confusion of the 2 versions of Spider-man 3 (single and part of trilogy) along with those coming with 40gb PS3's.
My setup:
Samsung LNS3251D 32" LCD HDTV
60 GB Playstation 3
Sony RxD7AV Dolby 5.1 Stereo system
25 Blu-Ray movies so far

Me, too! I think the Spiderman trilogy can beat Transformers the first week, but only if the retailers ordered enough copies in the first place. If they don't order but 150,000 units (for their warehouse) and they sell out in the first 3 days, their next shipment might not make it there in time to sell an additional 40 or 50,000 copies.

Looking at that Spiderman thread with the voting pole, the vast majority of people are buying the trilogy (like 87%). I think this will translate to the vast majority buying the trilogy the week of Oct. 30. Plus, this is a prime PS3 demographic Spiderman is aimed at.

In the end, only 10% of the PS3 owners need to pick up the trilogy in the first week to hand Transformers it's @ss. I think it's definitely possible.

Spiderman all the way. Spiderman 3 was alot better than Transformers imo and has a broader appeal. Transformers lacked in many ways but it was dumb fun (well at least some parts of it) and was a big letdown from the cartoon film. Spidey3 was also a big letdown since part 2 was really great, but was still alot better than Transformers which was decent. It will outsell Transformers for sure. Of course I'll end up picking Transformers when it comes on BLU just because it was decent enough to get.
