Blu-Ray Outselling HD-DVD 2:1

According to the Nielsen Video Scan Ratings, Blu-Ray outsold HD-DVD's 2:1 during the first two weeks of January! This is reportedly the first independent analysis of both HDTV formats.

What does this mean in the long term? Not much. It's just a fact. We can't conclude from this that Blu-Ray is winning the war. It is way too early. However, we can say that Blu-Ray is doing well since it's release. We'll keep a close watch on developments, and in about 6 months we should be able to draw more conclusive results. Well done Sony thus far.

No doubt, the Playstation 3 has been a huge factor in sales. By including a Blu-Ray drive in the PS3, Sony have infiltrated over 1,000,000 blu-ray drives into home across the globe. Many so called "analysts" were "predicting" that the gamers would not be interested in High Definition movies. Early reports were also speculating on premature figures that those that purchased the PS3 were not buying Blu-Ray movies and concluded the format was failing. Gosh the crap we have to sift threw to get real information!!!
