Yes it's obvious that Blu-Ray sales were going to go up when HD DVD failed, but this is still news...now we've got a number to roll with, with which we can make comparisons. Unless you happened to know that Blu-Ray sales were going to go up in the vicinity of 351%, don't complain about this thread!
And to those saying it's too small of an increase - well for one thing, that is not a very small number. Digital downloads are supposed to be gaining ground, but obviously it's not having that much of an impact. Players apparently cost way too much, but they're also apparently worth the money, looking at that increase. The Blu-Ray 2.0 spec is hardly mainstream as far as hardware support goes, but I doubt that surge in sales is from mostly 2.0 players. See where I'm going with this?

The 360's we don't have any premiums and the elites, we only have enough to fill up under the 360 demo display. Come and take some of ours away please?
I guess your Best Buy is the one inside Bill Gate's house or something. Seriously, that description is so far from average that I'm not sure if it's true.
