get this threw your head's Xbots and Blu-ray hatters.

Blu-ray will go down in Price after X-mass because by then all them Movie studios will have made all the $$$$$$ they LOST supporting that DEAD format that there milking Blu-ray for there cash back.

After they make there cash Back BLU-ray will EXPLODE and u fools will just look like the FOOLS u are.

Blu RAy will be becoming the DEFACTO standard in a year of 2.
I expect Blu Ray to become the standard by 2009 in europe and Japan

If the US economy resurges then it will become the standard by 2009 too

Yeah sure sounds like a format on deaths door eh! (Canadian sarcasm)

Wait till Christmas when more people get HD TV's it will probably double.

mikeslemonade5750d ago

Cheaper Blu-ray Player $400? Cheapest DVD player $10? Once blu-ray drops in price it's only going to get bigger.

Monchichi0255750d ago

These numbers reflect 1 week in which TRANSFORMERS was released! Transformers is like the wholly grail of HD movies for the majority of people who own BD players. (PS3 owners - males between 15 - 35.

In two weeks or so, numbers will be back to normal.

It does not happen often, but I agree with you on this.

oh ya a whole 12% and ps3 fanboys actually think that means dvds are dead. I and beyond amazed at how stupid the fanboys on this site really are

barom5750d ago

oh I wouldn't expect the EU to get into blu-ray that quick. I was in Norway in the summer and blu-ray wasn't big. I think the prices were twice the price of DVD or close to. Not to mention that the selection was small. They had half a shelf at electronic stores (Spaceworld, Expert) and GameStop.

Their biggest chain Elkjop had a bit larger selection but nothing compared to over here in the US.
