Weekly Blu-ray sales up 120% year-over-year, DVD down 13%
The latest Blu-ray sales figures are out, and Valkyrie topped Taken for the top spot in the U.S. for the week ending May 24, according to Nielson VideoScan First Alert. More importantly, however, Blu-ray sales continue to grow, up 119.47% in total revenue from this week last year, while DVD sales are down 13.10% from last year.
While the Blu-ray format is certainly gaining momentum, it has well over another year to go before it comes close to overtaking DVD. This week's top 20 DVDs outsold the week's top 20 Blu-ray discs by over six to one (6:1).
Below are the top 10 best-selling Blu-rays this week, in order:
- Paul Blart: Mall Cop
