Can Blu-ray save Christmas for Hollywood?

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Movie studio executives on Friday presented the best-case scenario for a winter holiday surge in the purchase of high-definition Blu-ray players as their best hope to keep the U.S. home video market's decline from accelerating past 3 percent or 4 percent this year.

not only blu ray but movie studios are being saved by super heros.

wow, didn't see that coming.
The title doesn't say that "blu-ray needs saving"?

Or "Can Christmas save blu-ray" or "can Hollywood save blu-ray"

But it says that "Can blu-ray save"

This crap is getting old already. I'll use this argument time and time again...what's the purpose of people buying HDTV when they're not even going to fully utilize their HDTV's full capabilities?

LMAO
For a second I thought the title was "Can Christmas save Blu-Ray ?"

Sorry, I've just got used to tons of anti-blu-ray news here in N4G.

Blu-Ray will save Hollywood when they stop putting out sh*tty movies and stop being greedy with the Blu-Ray prices.

The Blu-Ray will save Hollywood...
...If older movies can go through the Blu-Ray HD upgrades, then "yes".

If only newer movies can go through the Blu-Ray HD upgrades, then "yes, but newer movies must be marketed".

The TRUTH of how Blu-ray is doing in the market is always in stark contrast to the PROPAGANDA. Even if you're EXTREMELY GENEROUS & say PS3 is shifting 80,000 units per week sales would have to QUINTUPLE for any hope of meeting even the DEG's REDUCED projections. Blu-ray MIGHT have been able to eek out a 10.5 million install base by the end of 2008 if the economy hadn't been flushed down the cr*pper, but even with a strong economy the PS3 wouldn't be able to sustain sales of 400,000 per week without a substantial price cut.

Can Blu-ray save Christmas for Hollywood? Not a chance in hell.
