NPD reports :-

"Consumers paid more than $30 million for 147,000 Blu-ray players during a week in which the average price was slightly more than $200, down from about $240 the previous week, DisplaySearch said. About one in four video-disc players purchased for the week ended Nov. 29 were Blu-ray machines. Sales of Sony's PlayStation 3 videogame console, which includes a Blu-ray player, weren't included in the DisplaySearch figures.

Sony and Samsung, selling their cheapest Blu-ray players for $179 and $199, respectively, accounted for 85% of Black Friday week sales and helped unit sales also triple from the week ended Nov. 22. "

Now what to do SONY!

Me thinks.

3 choices.

1)Advertise PS3 as a blu-ray player.

B)Advertise PS3 as a games machine.

III)Advertise PS3 as both.

And the winner is, Just advertise the bloody thing all over the place.
