Fox is releasing 8 blu-ray movies for the launch of the ps3...but look at the cost! $39.99!
Voting cool because 50 gb Blu-ray titles is a good thing, and also because the $40 is the suggested retail price. I doubt they'll be that much. Probably $25-30.
SWEET FANCY MOSES, 40 bucks
$40 for a movie?!?!?! I seriously doubt the market will support that as there isn't real demand (yet) for either format. I just don't see it when current format is sufficient. gCM
Who is going to spend 25 or 30 dollars on a movie to watch at home. If they charge any more than 20 dollars I think the Sony ship will be sinking.
Thats what I paid for Top Spin 2!!!
You can buy a 360 game for that price!!
Bye Bye Sony :)
40 dollars is a lot of cash...and when you're buying Dude, where's my car, which you can buy on dvd for 13 dollars, what option do you think people will choose?
This is truly insane. Dvd's are still hugely popular, and the difference in quality to a majority of consumers is nonexistant.
At the same time, if movies are pricing at this level, what are games going to go for?
Blu-ray promises much, but undelivers on quality. Sounds like anyone familiar?
Yes, it sounds like Vista.
Oh, and as for you complaining about $40 ? Lmao.
Every movie released in the UK is priced between £20-25, so to pay the same price for a HD version of the movie is a no-brainer for me when I have a HDTV (Ironically one that is advertised on this site. A 40V2000)
Why do people keep posting this stuff trying to turn this into a moviesite
Wait a minute They want consumers to pay $40 for a FN Movie when they can get it for like $15-$20 on regular DVD or cheaper on HD_DVD if they choose the HD route.
Oh yeah that's going to run well with consumers when they see dvd classic and racks at walmart, where they can get 6 classics for the price of one BR movie..well shiver-me-timbers.
But isn't this the moment we've all been waiting for! BEHOLD! The holy pinnacle of gaming itself......Blu-ray! I'm so excited about watching movies on my PS3!!!!! This is going to be soooooooo next-gen guys!!!! God I can't wait to reserve my very own PS3, I bet I'm the first to watch Speed in all of its slightly better and twice as expensive looking glory!!!
Please, I mean who feels that we need to know this. In fact, it wasn't even this bad when they were hyping Blu-ray. I want to hear about what Blu-ray can do for games for a change.
you can sell just top movies like lord of the rings in hd quality for 30-40$. Not many people need top quality for am comedy like wedding crashers.
For a movie to be properly displayed in true HD it has to filmed in HD. Old movies are not filmed in a HD format, they are converted so they can be shown in "HD". Do a little reasearch if you don't believe me.
