Blu-ray Gains Ground While HD DVD Fades Away

This week’s Nielsen VideoScan numbers from Home Media Magazine show that, for the week ended 3/30, HD DVD faded to 16% of the high-def market, with Blu-ray at 84%. That puts them at 67/33 since inception. But more interesting is that Blu-ray took 8% of the general market, to DVD’s 92%. That’s up from 6% last week. The growing number of day-and-date Blu-ray releases and increased player sales should see Blu-ray continue to gain market share.
