its going to be relying on the PS3 until the Holidays.
another analysis saying the same things. BD will rely on the PS3 for at least another year. Stand alone players need to come down in price. Once that happens, coupled with more HDTV's a shift will start and dependency will lessen.
by the end of the year your going to see lots of BD sales, thats why I didnt read it, but I did approve it to see whats on everyones mind today. nothing to worry about here.
...on gulping your mom's pu$$y juice?
I'm gonna agree for no reason at all.
Gamers interested in DVD's too much? Sorry but all the BR "news" is always just one guys opinion, they rarely supply hard evidence for their claims. HD has and is experiencing a faster adoption rate than DVD and they turned out alright didnt they.
its time for bluray to rely on ps3. see home much increase ps3 got when hd dvd called it quits. ppl like myself went out to buy the ps3 first reason being "CHEAPEST BLU RAY PLAYER"
Who cares if it's reliant on something, it's the ONLY high-def format left.
Blu-ray is still very young. The disks are still quite expensive compared to DVDs and most people have not bought a high-def TV to take advantage of the format. Once plasma and LCD become the standard household TVs, people will start to take advantage of the technology they have and prices will drop on the disks. Relax; new tech adoption does not happen overnight!
What! First off Blu-Ray was introduced and debuted w/ the PS3. So many companies along with people doubted blu-ray & PS3... some still do. Neither one relies on one another, their one... seeing that the PS3 is the first Blu-Ray player that's updatable both need each other. If not then you'll see a mediocre system forced to by up most of the 3rd party developer titles. Much like a system I refuse to even mention.
Im confused how can Disc product be consider reliant on Disc Playing Product? Isnt that why it was made? I got one for you was CD too reliant of CD PLAYERS? Seriously thats why the PS3 was made with a Blu Ray drive.. To play Blu Ray and help the Blu Ray sales.. and make BLu Ray the HD standard... Now it is the standard.. Blu Ray sales are booming.. Ps3 games are made on blu ray discs.. I honestly dont see the problem Dumb article in my opinion
blu ray is still selling well and will sell a lot better from here on out..
...And in other news, XBox's are still burning down houses everywhere.
If they dropped the damn prices to the stand alone players then it wouldn't be.
Some one approved this garbage?
PS3 is just a small piece of the pie that Blu-ray sold. There were already companies announcing Blu-ray even before the PS3 came out. Disney, Fox, Phillips, Sharp, Sony, etc. Now you even have apple making Blu-ray now Blu-ray touch on all Apple products. Wal-mart, Warner Bros., Net Flix, Best Buy, etc. It's a lot more complex than what this article is making out. I'll say this PS3 helped Blu-ray out a lot but that's not the only thing that contributed to it's success.
