Blu-Ray creeps ahead of HD-DVD April 24, 2007

Posted by Al in : gadget , trackback

It’s a battle that is probably bigger in the reporting than in the flesh. However, the competition between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD is definitely ongoing, and Blu-Ray has just notched up 1 million sales, and has 70% of the market share so far this year. If you’d asked last year, then HD-DVD was going to win hands down, thanks to the porn industry’s support for it. However Blu-Ray has the backing of Sony, with their vast movie library; Disney, who are Blu-Ray only; and the wide availability of the PS3 as an affordable Blu-Ray player. We’ll probably end up with players that play both formats being cheap and easily available next year, but for the next 12 months my money is on Blu-Ray.
