Due to the fact that almost all DVD's and Blu-ray discs are now released in widescreen only, I find the Amazon sales tracker no longer necessary. The tracker history is preserved below.

|First week sales stats from Video Business.|
- A lower number is better; remember, these are top sellers, not units sold. #1 is the best.
- Widescreen usually out-sells pan & scan by a good margin for the first several weeks.
- Video Business statistics are gathered from a variety of retailers, including Amazon.com, Best Buy, Buy.com, Circut City, and Wal*Mart.
- A * on the chart indicates that the DVD did not make the Video Business Top 20 Sales Chart.
