    Report: Blu-ray player sales triple on Black Friday week

    Video Business (via Engadget HD) reports that on Thanksgiving week (which, of course, includes Black Friday), consumers snapped up about 147,000 Blu-ray players, spending more than $30 million in the process—a figure that doesn't include the Blu-ray equipped PlayStation 3.

    Still, according to the Video Business report, only about one in four "video-disc players" purchased during Thanskgiving week were Blu-ray players

    Some other interesting statistics from the same Video Business article: Research firm DisplaySearch expects about 3.84 million Blu-ray players to be sold in 2009—a 76-percent spurt—while DVD deck sales will drop 24 percent, though still accounting for some 14 million units.
