Blu-ray destroying HD DVD in sales; consider the war over

via DVICE by Adam Frucci on 1/22/08


I hate to break it to you early adopters who gambled on HD DVD as your choice in the HD disc format war, but it looks like Blu-ray won. After Warner Bros announced that it was going exclusively with Blu-ray, everyone pretty much decided that the war was over, and it looks like consumers listened.

That’s because in the week after Warner’s announcement, it looks like almost 93% of all HD players sold were of the Blu-ray variety. It doesn’t get much more lopsided than that. So if you’ve been waiting for a clear sign that it’s safe to jump in on the side of Blu-ray, it doesn’t get much clearer than this. Consider the format war, at long last, over.
