Blu-ray Trounces HD DVD Again
HD DVD backers say sales will improve this summer.
By Phillip Swann
(April 20, 2007) -- Sales of Blu-ray HDTV DVDs once again trounced rival HD DVD in March and the Sony-backed format now has a 69-31 percent sales lead in the first three months of 2007.
That's according to Nielsen Video Scan, which tracks the sale of the new high-def DVDs.
Blu-ray supporters say the widening lead is evidence that the format is pulling away from HD DVD in the high-def DVD format war. The two formats are competing for the new high-def DVD audience.
However, HD DVD backers tell Video Business that its format will rebound due to lower player prices and the release of 70 new HD DVD titles between now and summer. Toshiba, the biggest supporter of the HD DVD format, recently introduced a $399 player.
Ken Graffeo, executive vice president of marketing for Universal, the only studio to exclusively support HD DVD, conceded that Blu-ray would keep its lead until the fourth quarter. But he said HD DVD should perform well then.
But enough about numbers, does anyone know when prison break on blu-ray is hitting? I've been waiting for it forever but I don't think it has a solid release date.
