Default Survey: HD DVD Exit Could Spark Blu-ray Sales Surge


Washington, D.C. (February 17, 2008) -- Blu-ray player sales could see a sharp spike if rival format HD DVD drops out of the race as expected.

An online poll conducted this weekend by found that 43 percent of respondents would buy a Blu-ray player if Toshiba pulls the plug on HD DVD.

News reports this weekend have said Toshiba is planning to stop production on new HD DVD players and cede defeat to Blu-ray in the format battle.

The poll, which attracted 2,500 participants, found that only 20 percent said they would not buy a Blu-ray player if HD DVD drops out.

Thirty-seven percent of respondents said they already had a Blu-ray player.

I've always maintained that the war was holding back people from buying into HDM.
I do expect to see a surge in both hardware & software following an official announcement.
