TG Daily published a report on the latest trends in TV, home video and video gaming. One of the interesting things is that the PS3 is expected to remain the driving force behind Blu-ray sales, the site writes almost nine out of ten PS3 owners use their console to watch Blu-ray movies:
The PS3 is widely believed to remain the primary driver behind Blu-ray sales, as 87% of PS3 owners said they watch Blu-ray movies on their console. The fact that Microsoft decided not to integrate a HD DVD drive into the Xbox 360, may have sealed the format’s fate: The EMA said that Microsoft sold 316,000 HD DVD add-ons for the Xbox 360, which is marginal when compared to U.S. PS3 sales, which were close to 3 million by the end at 2007.
