"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.
