Blu-ray and HD DVD titles are gaining ground

As further proof of the gaining momentum of the High Definition format, it was reported by distributor Warner Home Video that the Oscar winning movie “The Departed” directed by Martin Scorsese, is the first release to sell a quantitative 100,000 copies. The movie is being offered in both the Blu-ray and HD DVD formats. Considering the significant price gap between the HD DVD/Blu-ray versions and the standard DVD versions, this is a very good sign that the Hi-Def format carries a lot of pull with the consumer. This just further proves the gaining momentum of the format and that the future of optical media lies in the larger hi-def format.
