-Lots of PS Store news. Tekken 5 could be downloadable in the near future, and there are some new items headin' our way for the PS Store this week! Look for impressions of Sudoku and Lemmings soon.
-Blu-Ray sales seemed to have doubled very soon after the release of the PS3, according to Video Business. From the blog:
I haven't heard a number yet for Blu-ray, but I have heard Blu-ray disc sales were twice as high on Blu-ray in the days following the PS3's launch and backers seem pleased so far.
Sounds like a nice start for BD, but there's still a long road ahead.
