250,000. nearly 1 million. 69%. Those are Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's Blu-ray sales in Europe, the U.S. and Blu-ray's share of the total HD market in Europe. Apparently someone knows the PlayStation 3 plays Blu-ray discs
, as the company touted weekly Blu-ray sales of two to five times that of its competitor, HD DVD since the console made its European debut in March. Sony Pictures was first to carry the Blu-ray banner in Europe and plans on bringing Spider Man 3
and Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind
this fall to join the #1 best selling HD title in Europe, Casino Royale
(no word on if that includes all those PS3 pack-ins
). With or without StudioCanal
, Sony's moving forward in Europe and around the world
, software and all.
