Blu-ray Disc Leads First Three Quarters of 2007 Almost 2 to 1

Through to the end of September the ‘Year to Date’ numbers were 2.6M discs for Blu-ray and 1.4M discs for HD DVD.
The ‘Since Inception’ numbers which include 2006 are 3.01 M discs for Blu-ray and 1.97 M discs for HD DVD, a total of almost 5M discs.
