Blu-Ray Won Format Fight, But Technical Issues Remain

With HD DVD deader than "Cavemen," Blu-ray survives as the lone high-definition disc format. But for how long? With on-demand and, ultimately, online streaming and movie downloads, Blu-ray could look prehistoric in a hurry.

But you can bet your PlayStation 3 that Blu-ray won't go away without a fight, so let's take a look at what to expect if you're in the market for a new player and then take one for a test drive.

Another one of these?

There are a lot of bitter HD DVD fans out there ya know, and as far as the BD won, we will probably continue to see these articles until digital download flops.

Massacre3503d ago

Why is it so hard for people to accept that BD has won and that it will be successful ? What is so bad about BD that has spun so much hate ?

mindedone3503d ago

This isn't newsworthy. The first one, maybe, the fiftieth, not so much.

CD and DVD and Bluray will stop, but world is full of stores and people will not stop going to stores.

Stores need CD, DVD, and Bluray.

People have stopped going to stores for CD. Major stores like Tower Records have gone out of business because of digital downloads. The same will EVENTUALLY happen with movies.

Maybe in 50 years or so. Not for the foreseeable future. The network bandwidth and infrastructure isn't there yet for mass consumer adoption of high-res movies and games.

Plus, we're a materialistic culture. We're not materialistic about songs, because we're USED to transient listening of songs, be it in FM radio or at concerts. Materialism isn't an aspect in music as much as it is for movies and games.

50 years or so??? More like 5-10years. It has already started. The new wave of high speed internet has already begun.

"we're USED to transient listening of songs, be it in FM radio or at concerts. Materialism isn't an aspect in music as much as it is for movies and games."

If Songs = FM Radio or concerts than movies = Television or movie theaters

then come back after 5 years, i bet i wouldn't be use too much blu ray by then either
but for now to 5 years later?
blu ray all the way

FirstknighT3502d ago

Bluray all the way??? Actually standard dvd will still be king. Bluray will never have a long successful run like standard dvd. Bluray will just be another Lazer Disc.
