Turns out, there’s a fair few. Having a quick look at some online movie retail stores, there’s a little bit of variation between exactly how many Blu-ray discs have been released in Australia. But as you can see, the number clearly sits above the 1,200 mark:
EzyDVD: 1,334 JB HiFi: 1,280 Bluray Entertainment: 1,253 DVDown Under: 1,251
I should add that Sanity has 1,026 results in Blu-ray, while CDwow had over 3,500 – although they sell titles from other regions as well.
And of course, those numbers tell us nothing about the quality of movies that are being released on Blu-ray, nor if there are any doubling up. But still, over a thousand movies is a pretty good platform for a format only a few years old. Hopefully we’ll see even bigger numbers of titles released over the course of 2010.
