Nielsen VideoScan High-Def market share for week ending February 8th, 2009

Ben Drawbaugh

Whoa, some movies are just no friend to Blu-ray fans as two titles helped push the overall Nielsen VideoScan market share down to half of what it was last week, which is the lowest in six months (when the Sex in the City Movie was released). Space Buddies was really the title that push the charts down with only 3 percent of the overall sales going to Blu-ray, but the other one was The Life of Bees which was also only at 3 percent. This was just too much for Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (9 percent) and Zach and Mari Made a Porno (11 percent) to overcome. Blu-ray is still up when compared to last year and we don't see this one week as a start of a trend. Next week should definitely be better considering the solid slate of great catalog titles for Blu-ray that were released, but with no blockbusters on the calendar, we really aren't about to try and make any predictions.
