Blu-ray winning in Europe

Europeans together own more that 55,000 HD DVD players and Xbox 360 add-on drives, it has emerged, but that total pales beside the number of PlayStation 3s sold over here: 750,000.

Market watcher Understanding and Solutions - which has long vociferously forecast Blu-ray's victory in the format war - provides the figure for standalone players, though the number of Xbox HD DVD drives comes from Screen Digest. Both figures arrive via a story in US publication Home Media Magazine.

U&S has another stat: during 2007, BD media outsold HD DVD by a ratio of three to one, with Blu-ray passing the million disc mark in November of that year.

Why is news like this still being approved. Blu-Ray has basically won the battle, wooopy doo.

Its like posting news about Football results from last year.

Neurotoxin3269d ago

True enough. But does anyone really care that much?

meepmoopmeep3269d ago

the only ones that care more than others are ps3 owners, pretty much, that's the only thing "gaming" that has to do with blu-ray

Lord_Ash3269d ago

It's not like anyone really cares but I want to see if there will ever be a twist in this tale (although I highly doubt it).

Posting this isn't news since everybody already knows Blu-Ray is winning in every region now.
