Blu-Ray movies selling twice as much as HD-DVD ones

Love it or hate it, it appears that the gap between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD continues to increase despite the low (but temporarily decent) sales of Sony’s Playstation 3 system. According to a study by Home Media research, Blu-Ray is now selling twice as many movies as the HD-DVD format is:

The organization’s report estimates about 1.6 million copies of Blu-Ray movies sold between the start of the year and July 1st, with HD DVD only reaching 795,000.

This format war is long from over, but just as I anticipated, Blu-Ray is slowly becoming the dominant format. It’s the Betamax Versus VHS all over again but, ironically, it appears that this time Sony is on the winning side.
