At CEDIA 2007, Sony tried to get more investors in on Blu-ray technology by presenting them with current sales figures. While it is true that Blu-ray is getting quite a lot of support, with exclusive deals from retail giants Target and Blockbuster, Blu-ray is nowhere near as popular as Sony wants you to believe. In the graphs that Sony does publish, they claim "more than twice the sales of HD DVD" and a much higher market share. However, if you look closely, the Blu-ray market is very unstable, and a current recession might even put HD DVD ahead of Blu-ray. A closer look at the market share graph shows that for several months, HD DVD had a much larger market share.
