Blu-ray Sales Up 400% in UK

he British Video Association (BVA) has revealed that 1.5 Million Blu-ray titles were sold during the month of December, representing a nearly 400% increase over the same period last year, despite the tough economic environment. The top Blu-ray seller, not surprisingly, was Warner's 'The Dark Knight' which sold 281,000 units during the month.

I wonder what the sales figures for HDDVD and Digital Distribution are?

I can just imagine those Digital Downloads stuffed under a Christmas Tree somewhere during Christmas.

Tell that to all the sensationalized bloggers and media sites who seemingly want to continue to propagate the "Blu-Ray is dying; Digital Distribution and DVD are the future" articles that constantly pop up around here.

You will continue to see these articles until DVD is no longer for sale and the Digital Download Coalition and HD-DVD revolutionists stop publicizing FUD about BD. Yeah, BD is the winning format but there are a plethora of idiots that would try and say otherwise, even after a year of great sales like 2008 was for BD.

bluray is great, im just sick of reading these articles with the same predictable comments.

I'm pretty sure sales of EVERYTHING went up 400% during December. Because you know, theres that one little holiday I think its on the 25th..

Queers of War4205d ago (Edited 4205d ago )

maybe if you paid close attention to the article, it said a 400% increase over THE SAME PERIOD LAST YEAR. the holiday that was on the 25th...yeah i think it happened last year too. wait lemme check just to make sure i didnt make a fool of myself.....yeap christmas happened last year too.

GiantEnemyLobster4205d ago

Because I doubt the fact that an extra year going by with people continuing to buy PS3s and Bluray players therefore expanding the market had ANY effect on the increase.
