European Blu-Ray sales hit 2m

Europe has bought 2.37 million Blu-Ray disks since the format went on sale in 2006, achieving the landmark figure faster than it took standard DVD to when it first appeared in 1997.

The news comes just three months after the format broke the one million European sales mark in November last year.

Blu-Ray sales accounted for 79 per cent of all HD disk sales over the last year in the region, leaving the rapidly faltering HD-DVD format trailing behind with 21 per cent of sales.
