NPD Report on Player Sales January Week 4 Shows Roughly 2:1 in Favour of Blu-ray Disc

sony2.thumbnail.jpgWe read over at Twice Daily that ‘Blu-ray’s Lead Narrows’, though apparently they came to that conclusion by comparing to the report from two weeks ago.

While Twice are stating that Blu-ray held 65% in week 4, and HD DVD held 28% (with roughly 6% for combos), my recollection of week 3 had HD DVD at 34%. So it would seem that in the second week of the new retail pricing for HD DVD players, the market share for HD DVD has decreased from 34% to 28%.

In any case, market share for week 4 was as follows: Sony (32 percent unit share, 33 percent dollar share), Toshiba (28 percent unit share, 14 percent dollar share), Samsung (13 percent unit share, 23 percent dollar share), Sharp (17 percent unit share, 14 percent dollar share), Panasonic (8 percent unit share, 12 percent dollar share) and LG (1 percent unit share, 3 percent dollar share).
