Innovations such as this are a big help for the consumer. If they can get the price of players down to 299 or less, and the prices of movies brand new by 10 dollars (19.99 - 25.99), we will see a big jump in sales.

i have to get a Sound system before i take full advantage of that movie, its the only way to cherish the moment. especially now that that they are taking advantage of the BD 50gb disc instead of the inferior HD-DVD disc.

If u have an HDTV then u should get a BD drive/ps3

Yah, the prices for blu-ray movies should really be lower. New movies can go as high as $50.
