From ArsTechnica:

Nielsen VideoScan has released its latest figures on Blu-ray and HD DVD sales, and Blu-ray is starting to close the gap on its competitor. According to Nielsen's data as reported by Home Media Magazine, Blu-ray titles outsold HD DVD titles by a better than two-to-one margin during the first week of January and closer to three-to-one (38.36 HD DVD titles for every 100 Blu-ray titles) during the second week of the month.

Nielsen VideoScan is the go-to source for the consumer electronics industry when it comes to tracking video sales. The metrics firm tracks sales in nearly every distribution channel from the Internet to big-box retailers and specialty stores. Although hardware sales figures have been easy to come by, the movie studios and distributors have kept actual movie sales figures under wraps, so this is one of the first clear glimpses of what's going on with next-gen disc sales.
