This battle continues and isn't that clear who is winning although the smart money is on Blu-ray....
So the US figures:
HD : 300,000 but that is 150,000 dedicated players and 150,000 other half are Xbox add ons.
Blu-ray: 1,500,000 but only 100,000 are dedicated players and the rest based on the sale of the PS3.
So it appears a win for Blu-ray....but then again all HD sales were a deliberate purchase of a HD player not just because it came with the cames console....
So result not clear.
Blu-ray: Casino Royale - 86,300
HD: Batman Returns - 53,500
So a win for Blu-ray
Most are with Blu-ray
Stores in US
Top 2 stores in US now only sell Blu-ray
Blockbusters now only to stock Blu-ray
So its clear that Blu-ray is the only way forward.
