Blu-ray Making Significant Advances in Japan
The Japanese study shows that next generation recorder sales are up to 20% of total sales, with a remarkable 35% of the revenue.
Of these next generation recorders, 90% were Blu-ray and only 10% HD DVD. The Playstation 3, which is also capable of Blu-ray playback, is not counted in these numbers.
The study also showed that Sony has the lions share of the DVD recorder market with 60%, followed by Panasonic and Sharp, with Toshiba in last place with 4%.
