- The PlayStation 3 appears to be the Blu-ray player of choice, as 87 percent of PS3 owners watch Blu-ray movies on their console, says a report from the Entertainment Merchants Association.
The 2008 Annual Report on the Home Entertainment Industry
says the PS3 will remain the driving force behind Blu-ray sales until 2009.
Microsoft, which did not integrate a HD DVD drive into the Xbox 360 sold only 316,000 HD DVD add-ons for the console in 2007, the reports says.
PS3 sales, in large part because of its Blu-ray compatibility, were close to 3 million by the end of 2007.
And that's just one of the reasons the PS3 should be the Blu-ray player you install in your customers' home theater.
The report also says Blu-ray will outsell standard DVDs in 2012, generating more than $9.5 billion in sales.
