WB says THE DEPARTED sold over 100k HD DVDs

From IMDb:

'Warner Bros. Claims Record High-Def DVD Sales for 'The Departed'

While Sony had boasted last March that its Blu-ray high-definition edition of Casino Royale was the first to ship more than 100,000 units, Warner Home Entertainment trumped that announcement today (Thursday) with an announcement of its own that it had actually sold more than 100,000 high-definition copies of its The Departed. "It's no accident that Warner is the first studio to reach this benchmark," the company said in a news release. "We owe this success to a combination of great content and our decision to support both high definition formats," Blu-ray and HD DVD. Sony Home Entertainment releases high-definition product only on Blu-ray, which was developed by Sony and Philips.'

Gosh, I'm going to sound like a total Blu-ray fan boy right now.

The WB's 100k copies of The Departed includes BOTH Blu-ray and HD DVD sales of The Departed right? Also, I see their HD DVD copy includes the DVD copy. So just a lot of confusing numbers, still don't know anything about what actually got sold.

HD DVD and Blu-Ray, so I'm not 100% sure if it really is HD DVD sales since they have both.
