Blu-Ray sales outpacing DVD

Optical disc hardware specialist Singulus has received orders for 21 Blu-Ray dual-layer duplication machines in the first quarter of this year – a faster adoption than of the format’s predeccesor DVD 11 years ago.

"This means that the orders for Blu-ray in the first year of the dual layer technology already by far exceeded the volume at the start of the DVD 11 years ago with 17 machines," said chief financial officer Stefan Baustert.

The stats appear to directly contradict the opinion of Microsoft entertainment president Robbie Bach, who told The San Francisco Chronicle that consumers are not likely to pay extra money for Blu-Ray over DVD.
