Blu-ray Debuts Next Week

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has just confirmed that the first batch of Blu-ray movies will arrive in US stores next Tuesday, 20th June. Is this the start of a new format revolution, or the beginning of the end for Sony?

This is really funny no BetaBluRay player to be seen untill fall of this year, so where should people play it on?

Damn what a bad introduction this is

I could see it now. Wow I have my blu ray movie. Man look at that shine. Then my friends go. Hey dude what are you going to play on? Then I tell them that it isn't a problem. I just have to wait for the player to come out in the fall.

Toshiba did the same thing to with HD-DVD the movies were out before the hardware too. Don’t get it twisted I am not defending Sony or anything like that. I’m simply pointing out a fact. I may get the HD-DVD add on for my 360 but I am in no rush, even for PS3 or Blue Ray.

Bluray titles delayed, other bluray titles removed, actual hardware delayed till September (second delay in the last month), twice the price of HD-DVD. Follow this link to find out whats happening, great honest site.

I'm looking forward to Goodfellas, The Bourne Supremacy, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang & Serenity! So its got to be HD-DVD.

What is really cool about this is it will be a good way to gage how many people will be early adapters to blue ray. It could also be a clue into how they plan to launch the PS3.

So the blu-ray movies will be in the bargain bin before the players even hit the market. LOL
