What Blu-ray needs to do in 2009 in order to gain ground

You, the BDA, whomever, can spin it however you wish, but the fact is that Blu-ray has not had a momentous year. Has it been profitable? Sure. Has adoption grown? No doubt. But consumers at large are showing with their purchasing habits that DVD is still a-okay in their lives. Paul Sweeting over at ContentAgenda surmises that a huge strategy shift is needed for BD to ever seriously steal away market share from DVD. First off, the aptly coined PlayStation 3 "Trojan Horse" strategy has to go. The PS3 is clearly lagging behind the other two consoles in terms of sales, and now that BD deck prices are far lower than the console's MSRP, yet another advantage to owning one has slipped away. The point we most agree with is the one that's likely the most controversial: Blu-ray backers need to get honest here and realize that the format offers only "incremental improvement over standard DVD."

LOL @ Morganfell.

So, let's blame the person who is submitting legitimate news, not the people who are actually writing the stories.

We all know that Blu-ray is doing just fine, you don't have to feel all threatened by news articles.

This article is full of sh!t. I know it, you know it. don't sweat it.

You just contradicted yourself buddy...

nothing. It is doing a fine job as is. With more and more movies being released on Blu-Ray and more and more retail outlets giving more shelf space to BD players, HDTVs and the like it will do just fine. kthxbye.

That's right because a growth in Europe of over 300% is not growth.
