    Blu-Ray outsells HD-DVD for the 2nd Month

    2:1

    Debate over what factors are contributing to Blu-ray's recent dominance has generally focused on the impact of the PlayStation 3. Somewhat less than 2-million PS3s have been sold since launch, which effectively means a roughly similar number of HD-DVD and Blu-ray players are presently in circulation.

    Some within the movie industry questioned whether PS3 gamers would choose to use their consoles extensively for movie playback in addition to gaming. Current sales figures would suggest that a fair number are, which hardly surprises us since hardcore gamers tend to also be big fans of new technology and movies.

    With a second month of leading sales in the bag the Blu-ray camp is gaining confidence. There won't be an end to the format war any time soon, but if a few more months of Blu-ray outselling HD-DVD 2:1 stack up the industry will of course take notice.
    This is good news for Disney fans, seeing as Buena Vista supports Blu-Ray!

    Well, considering that Blu-Ray has support with more studios than HD-DVD (Universal being the big exception), no surprise this month.

    Hopefully more studios will make the switch! 300 on Blu-Ray would be sooo freakin' sweet!
