"Interestingly, two years into the standard DVD cycle, the DVD installed base was only 1.2 million and players were not nearly as inexpensive as $129 [BD players were] on Black Friday." This alludes to the reality that BD is being accepted and purchased at a faster rate than DVD was for the comparable period in each format's life cycle. By the end of 2008, dedicated BD player sales for the year are expected to reach 2.5 million units and are expected to double or triple in 2009. Sales of Sony PS3s are expected to reach 8 million game consoles by the end of December."
