Has the flood-gate opened?

I noticed this story on Engadget - apparently during week one of January the split between Blue-Ray and HD-DVD player sales was evenly split - after the Warner's announcement (ahead of CES) the picture has changed. By week two the split was 93% in favour of the Sony format. Looks like consumers have made their choice and I'm glad because a format war was only inhibiting the takeup of HD. Also - being a lot more mature technology (remember XD-Cam uses a Blue-Ray drive) I'd be more comfortable buying into Sony's format.
