Blu-ray to HD DVD Sales Ratio in Japan up to 9:1?

cea04_08.jpgNews from CEATEC 2007 in Japan indicates that the Blu-ray sales are as high as 9:1 and that there are no HD DVD titles in the top 10 titles.

Other slides in the presentation show increasing hardware support internationally for Blu-ray but little for HD DVD, and also indicate that Fujitsu has ended support for laptops with HD DVD in Japan.

It will be interesting to see how things continue in Japan, and how long Universal and Paramount decide to stay out of the Blu-ray market there. Being in the same region as the USA, Japan could be an interesting source of movies if the HD DVD exclusive studios decide to release in Blu-ray in Japan.
