Blu-ray Disc sales up 98%

[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

They say that you can’t get too much of a good thing, and if the latest sales figures for Blu-ray Discs are anything to go by, we’d be inclined to agree.

According to Digital Entertainment Group Europe, over 24.5 million Blu-ray Discs flew off shelves across Europe in the third quarter of 2010 alone. That’s a staggering increase in sales of 98.3% compared with the same period in 2009.

Alongside more competitive pricing of HDTV’s and Blu-ray players, the success of cinematic juggernaut Avatar and other HD box office hits are likely factors in Blu-ray’s increasing popularity.
And it doesn’t stop here; with big titles such as Inception and Toy Story 3 landing on the Blu-ray format just in time for Christmas, the outlook for 2011 looks very exciting. For more details visit: Ffog.net
