The Hollywood Reporter is reporting the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD garnered the top spot in Nielsen VideoScan's First Alert sales chart this week with a total of $302 million in sales.  First week sales of the sixth Potter film came in above the such releases as Public Enemies and Julie and Julia, which were ranked in second and third place, respectively.  The report goes on to note that the Blu-Ray editions of the sixth film consisted of "24% of its first-week sales," putting Half-Blood Prince atop Nielsen VideoScan Blu-ray Disc chart as well.  Finally, the sixth film placed second to the release of Public Enemies in the "Home Media Magazine's rental chart for the week ending Dec. 13."

And all the competition is meaning some seriously cheap prices, round my area anyway.

Edward, you misread the article in the Hollywood Reporter. No monetary figure has been released yet for the DVD sales for Half-Blood Prince. The $302 million is referring to U.S. box office totals.

I must say that despite the popularity of this franchise I am astounded by the figures given for sales of the DVD.

I just looked at the HBP movie today. I’m glad I have the movie, but my 19 yr old son and I were disappointed in the dreariness throughout the whole movie and the inability to see things and people due to the movie’s dark lighting. Color was practically void in the movie. I would’ve liked to have seen parts devoted to what actually happened and leave out what totally didn’t happen at all in the movie – like Bellatrix and her friends dropping in on the Weasleys.
