Doesn't seem to be capturing real market share does it?

Quite a good week on the surface for Blu-ray, or was it just a bad week for DVD? The graph of recent sales figures (since I've started posting them) below:

You'll have to wait till september for Ironman to see any meaningful comparison

June, july and august have been very sparse for decent releases

Most serious sd dvd collectors have already bought the classics

Blu-ray collectors are still adding older titles

Actually there will be some big releases by the end of the year along with Ironman

Transformers
Kill Bill 1 & 2
Sleeping Beauty (I think it will do better then people think)
The Godfather Collection: The Coppola Restoration
The Ultimate Matrix Collection

Dont get me wrong,I do understand what your getting at about Ironman.I think The Dark Knight will be the best selling Blu-ray when it comes out

Just my viewpoint--------DVD vs Blu-Ray

1. I am bias towards using portable media for hi def viewing and not using a media center PC and not using my PC monitor as a hi def HDTV screen.

2. I took the plundge and now have a upscale player for std def and output at 1080P and a blu-ray player output at 1080P feeding a 40 inch dia HDTV.

3. I mainly took the plundge because I was finding today so many of the Blu-ray players and future blu-ray players would not play the type of media I wanted them to play. BD-5, BD-9, BD-R, BD-RE, BD-ROM to me this is going to be a copy protection issue of the future.

4. But there is certainly a lot of hype about Blu-ray, at 20 feet from the 40in HDTV you can't see a picture difference from the upscale std def player and the hi def blu-ray player.

Media costs and player cost associated with Blu-ray are going to have to come way down before they will become main stream 1080P video.

the last few months, new releases for dvd have been mediocre

so dvd sales are down for top 20, of course

new blu-ray releases have been helped with older titles being released for the first time

when ironman comes out see how many sell as dvd vs how many sell as bluray

I would estimate as many as 19 to 1

that's the true picture of attach rate

What a winner BD is! NOT. Everyone loves HDTV. Hardly anyone wants BD - you'd think they capture a bit more market share by now. It's getting embarrassing.

BR7 24 Aug 2008 09:02 PM

In all fairness there really wasn't anything to buy this week .Its obvious that DVD owners still out number BR owners about 9 to 1,so I dont put to much stock in these ratings.I think after the holidays we will see better BR sales.I also think with all the negative BR articles people see on the web next to a good number of positive articles is confusing people and they do not know what to believe.. Blu-ray may have a slow start, but I have faith that people will see the Blu light and it will gain speed through out the year and next year

blutach 24 Aug 2008 10:15 PM

Maybe not anything to buy for the last 6 months, too? The market share has been about 7% since this thread started. I, for one, couldn't shed a tear for SONY, a company in trouble, who have poured millions into this technology and have not seen the desired takeup. Hope they lose millions more.

Regards
