Prometheus Breaks Blu-ray Revenue Share Record

Last week when Prometheus on Blu-ray debuted on shelves in the US and the UK, the Ridley Scott directed movie dominated the overall package media and Blu-ray only sales chart. An awesome feat on its own, but here’s another thing: “not only did Prometheus’ sales totals top other home media competitors, but it garnered an HD market share of 76%, which bested the record Blu-ray market share of 72% that The Avengers enjoyed during its first week on the small screen“, according to Blu-ray.com.

All of this is great news for Prometheus fans, 20th Century Fox, and for the progress of the Blu-ray medium as a whole. But to those who have or know about the Prometheus collector’s edition (3D) Blu-ray set with its enormous amount of deleted scenes and other bonus features for a price no different than many standard edition Blu-ray movies, this sales achievement shouldn’t be a surprise.
