May Blu-ray Sales to Surpass 2007 Total
We read over at Hollywood in Hi Def today a few interesting numbers on Blu-ray Disc sales.
The first interesting number – Blu-ray has sold over 11 million discs to date according to data compiled by the Redhill Group for Home Media Magazine.
The second statement is perhaps the most interesting though – projections based on preliminary data show that Blu-ray sales through May have already surpassed sales for all of 2007.
Also Blu-ray software sales in the first four months of this year more than quadrupled from the same period last year.
That puts all of the doom and gloom postings we have seen of late into some perspective!
The article notes that Transformers is officially set for September 2nd 2008, something confirmed by the press release at Digital Bits.
It is certainly interesting to see some real sales volume information, where we typically only get relative information and revenue numbers.
