  1. Didn’t anyone proofread the title before posting this article?
    There is no way in Hell that a DVD release can ever become a #1 Blu-ray title. It can become the #1 DVD title.
    It takes a Blu-ray release to become a #1 Blu-ray title.

  2. @Mr Video – While you are technically correct, it can go both ways as the Blu-Ray is a type of DVD as I understand the specs. But there are far worse cases for the grammar police on this very site and it got the point across, so I’m inclined to let them slide on this one. 😉
