Did you read the story?

The only reason his number dropped is because he's no longer counting the Trojan Horse... I mean, PlayStation 3 as a Blu-ray player.

"The estimates do not include Playstation 3 sales. "

There's your drop then.

Maybe they should drop the Blu ray movie prices by 25% while they're at it. :)

I really don't think that an analyst can talk about Blu-ray sales without mentioning or adding in PS3 sales as well because I think the PS3 is just as important.

As HDTV prices continue to come down and Blu-ray player prices come down more, Blu-ray will really do well... when "most" Blu-ray players hit the $199-$250 mark, that's when I think Blu-ray players will REALLY start to take off in sales.

The majority of the people that have stand alone Blu-ray players now probably are people with a middle-high income that own HDTV's or the Tech guru's that are always on top of the newest tech, because not many people are willing to spend $400+ dollars for a top-of-the-line Blu-ray player that JUST plays movies, but the PS3 is by far the best value for the price because It's a media hub, gaming console, and Blu-ray player all in one starting at $399... there are some Blu-ray players that are below $300 bucks, and I do think a lot of people will be going after those as well.

When it comes to Blu-ray, there's no worries here because The Dark Knight will do all the talking this holiday for Blu-ray Worldwide.
