Default Blu-ray Disc Sales Surpass One Million Milestone

At least the competing press releases keep us entertained.

Quote:
Today's BDA press release points out that not only did Blu-ray reach this milestone before its high-def rival, but it did so in less than a year. The "less than a year" part is particularly notable since the HD DVD camp marked the end of its first year on the market last week by trumpeting a series of accomplishments in its own press release.

The Blu-ray release also includes newly released sales figures from tracking firm Home Media Research, which show continued sales momentum for Blu-ray, with the format accounting for 70% of all high-definition movies sold during the first three months of this year, with that lead growing each month since the first of the year.

Other then owning a PS3 I really support neither... I own like 4 Blu-Ray movies... I would have HD-DVD movies if I had a player but I don't and everyone says the X360 Addon looks like crap and has Sound issues.

Blu-ray.

I don't see anything wrong with OWA posting Blu-ray news. Gives this section some "balance".

Weird...how does Fox own Firefly but Universal own Serenity? Isn't the IP all the same?

And wasn't Firefly shot in full-frame SD just like Buffy was?
