Majority of Blu-ray recorders sold in Japan support 3D

Japan buys more 3D Blu-ray recorders than 2D

New statistics from Tokyo-based research firm BCN have revealed that the majority -- 56.8 percent -- of Blu-ray recorders sold in Japan in December supported 3D content. The count is a significant bump up from the 6.7 percent in September, despite prices that are, on average, 30 percent higher than 2D recorders, the study found. The average price for a 3D recorder in Japan is about $900.

The percentage of 3D-capable TVs sized at more than 40 inches sold in Japan in December was 23, or much higher than the barely three percent in August. Still, 3D TV sales in Japan account for only five percent of all TV sales in the country.

This number should grow further, however, as makers keep on reducing prices for 3D TVs. The average price for a large-screen 3D TV is $2,300, or about $500 less than a 40-inch Sony Bravia cost in August. [via CrunchGear]
