At this point in the game, who would say anything against Blu-ray? Blu-ray is increasing FAST. It is already a success. :)

The title was changed to say that. The only mention of blu-ray in the article is:

"reflected significant and growing contributions from strong Blu-ray high-definition disc sales"

Put up news objectively and let people decide how to tilt it ftlog. The title of this page is why I hate N4G.

edit: yea... disagree. I'm sorry your news isn't quite as PS3 positive when it's objective.

Yeah, it is definitely becoming a mainstream media. I just hope they lower the cost a lil more now that the technology is improving. I would pay $20 for most of them, but $25-35 is a bit too high which makes me wait until holiday sales.

I buy most of my blu rays from amazon. Thie highest the sell there is like 27 bucks and i hardly by those. I am chilling on my blu ray spending already have like 30 blu rays lol and like 2 dvd's lol.

Only buying 4 more blu rays this yr. Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2 and the eventual Batman Begins and Dark Knight Bundle.

Considering getting indiana jones and the temple of the crystal skull.

Still patiently waiting for lucas to bless us with star wars trilogy:D

Lionsgate movies are so mediocre.

ThatArtGuy3817d ago

For the most part I'd agree, but 3:10 to Yuma was really good. Russell Crowe and Christian Bale did great performances.

The no holds barred violence factor. When Rambo turned the 50 cal on the guy sitting in the jeep ... sweeeeet!

Anyway, Blu-ray is really starting to take off. Iron Man and Dark Knight before Christmas.

EastCoastSB3817d ago

Sweet Jesus I can't wait for those two on Blu-Ray.

Oh and I agree with you about the Rambo thing.

morganfell3817d ago

Don't forget that Kill Bill 1 and 2 is out in September along with Bluray 4 disc edition of all 3 Godfather films. You get 3 movies and a bonus disk. The entire restoration and special edition process was overseen by Francis Ford Coppola.

Thoas3817d ago

I'm looking forward to Kill Bill too.

dro3817d ago (Edited 3817d ago )
