All the Blu-ray stats you never wanted

Pie Chart of BD market share by studio is a very simple website that provides exactly what its name implies – Blu-ray Disc statistics, and lots of them. You can find information on (apparently) every BD release – studio, release date, IMDB rating, the US Box Office figures, the video and audio codecs used, the type of disc (BD25 or BD50), if the disc is region coded, and the MSRP. You can slice and dice the data by studo, codec, etc. And you can get some graphs, like one above.

You can also list the percentage of market share BD has in the high-definition disc war with HD DVD, on a week-by-week basis. Back in the first week of the year (ending 2007-01-07) BD had 63.3% of the market (and YTD, obviously) and 41.2% since inception – as of the week ending 2007-07-14 that’s 66% for the week, 67% YTD, and 60% since inception.

An interesting site for people who like raw data. I don’t know if the site has any affiliation – the domain is registered to Dave Cowl of Rhobot Corp in Sunnyvale, CA, and it was registered on July 4th, 2007, so it is new.

I picked this up from EngadgetHD.
