The Blu-ray Disc Association has wasted no time, issuing a statement that it is victorious as the premiere high definition format of choice. With 25 different companies having released Blu-ray related products, over 170 movie and music titles announced so far and of course, more than one million PlayStation 3s (http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/07/live-from-the-sony-ces-keynote/)shipped to the U.S. Andy Parsons, chair of the U.S. Promotions committee is comfortable citing Blu-ray's industry support as a reason customers have voted with their wallets and will continue to do so. In 2007 the BDA looks forward to second generation PC and and standalone Blu-ray drives, like the BD-P1200 (http://www.engadgethd.com/2007/01/07/samsung-unveils-the-first-second-generation-blu-ray-player-bd-p/), the Sony Vaio XL3 (http://www.engadgethd.com/2007/01/07/sony-vaio-xl3-media-pc-announced-boasts-blu-ray-burner/) and a strong lineup of movie releases as why its market share will continue to increase this year, all but eliminating any competition by 2010.
