An internal survey meaning only Sony employees took part? :P

Also did they include the free copy of Casino Royale for UK owners?

They did at launch, if you registered on PSN, don't know how long that lasted for though.

I only buy and rent Blu-Ray whenever I can. But I wonder how many PS3 owners have that beast hooked up to a HDTV. I know some friends who play PS3 on SDTV's.

techie3969d ago went on for a long time - months after in fact. My point is that do those PS3 owners inclde Blu-ray watching peeps?

I actually watch blu-ray all the time and I think that is an accurate percentage. I may not buy the blu-ray movies but I am renting it on netflix I hope that counts.

everyone I know with a ps3 has watched at least one blu-ray movie, or are planning on buying a blu-ray movie

I've only got two movies at the moment, casino royale cause it was free and the pursuit of happiness.

Yeah i'd say thats about right.. in fact sense i've had the PS3 i havn't bought anything but Blu-ray... unless i couldn't get it on that format but last few months havn't really been a problem with that anymore..

Considering they have been running the free 5 hi def blu ray movies with purchase since summer, I would consider it a pretty accurate stat. I now have 8 blu rays in my collection, visiting best buy this weekend to add.
