Blu-ray grows slate


Now that the format war is over, Blu-ray Disc is fast pulling in the lead in terms of number of titles on the market.

A total of 454 Blu-ray titles have been released, with another 72 in the pipeline, pushing the format past the 500-title mark, according to the DVD Release Report.

HD DVD, meanwhile, has 412 titles in the market and just 23 planned, some of which sources say will never come to market now that Toshiba has officially pulled the plug on the format and halted production of players.
