Displaying A Firm Grasp Of The Obvious, Amazon Supports Blu-ray

Blu-ray.com had this quote:

Peter Faricy, vice president of movies and music at Amazon.com commented, “The high-definition landscape is rapidly changing, and consumers are looking for guidance on how to make the best high-definition buying decisions. Our customers have clearly voiced their support for the Blu-ray format. Blu-ray titles have increased from just over half of our high-definition sales to over three-quarters of our high-definition sales since early January. In order to best serve our customers, Amazon is recommending Blu-ray as the preferred digital format and will continue to carry the ‘Earth’s Largest Selection’ of Blu-ray products.”

Great to see Amazon stepping up as a leader in the market and taking a stand by making Blu-ray their ‘preferred digital format’. You know, as opposed to, say, HD DVD. ;-)

I mean, I love Amazon and all, but they could’ve just said “Me too!”

    We’re junkies, but Amazon’s push is the first time many consumers will hear about the format war drawing to a close.

    Shifting their focus to push BD makes sense. I was poking fun at their making a big announcement over it and calling BD their ‘preferred digital format’ as if they really had a choice. HD DVD is going away. What was their other option, making HD VMD their preferred format? ;-)

    It was just a way for Amazon to grab a little of the press for themselves. (And it worked, as evidenced by this post…)
