A combined total of over 750,000 standalone set-top players and Xbox 360 HD DVD players have now been sold through to consumers.

That's according to a just-issued press release from the HD DVD Promotions Group, clearly timed to signal continued momentum for the high-def disc format following a series of highly publicized Black Friday sales.

The 750,000 number comes only weeks after reports that the HD DVD camp would soon nearing the 500,000 mark for total standalone sales. (That earlier number did not include sales of Microsoft's Xbox 360 HD DVD player.)

"HD DVD continues to gain momentum and market share with consumers," said Ken Graffeo, co-president of the HD DVD Promotional Group. "With more than four weeks left for holiday shopping, HD DVD is turning out to be a perfect consumer electronics gift."
