Hardcore Christian Gamer writes: "Hey remember the format wars? That's right, long ago and far away there were once two different types of High Definition movies. There was HD-DVD and Blu-ray, both looked the same visually but Blu-ray had a larger storage capacity and better backing from the movie industry. Panelist debated long and hard over who would be the winner of the format war. The nail in the coffin however was when Warner Bros decided to go Blu-ray exclusive. Blu-ray disc was finally given the crown of the king of HD and skeptics speculated that the PS3 would skyrocket in the area of in-home-install-base due to the Playstation 3 being the cheapest Blu-ray player on the market.
It's easy to associate the PS3 with Blu-ray. Sony took the title as the HD winner and used it till it's juices were squeezed right out. With Blu-ray being the HD winner why wouldn't you think that Sony would do well with their Blu-ray player that happens to play video games? The problem itself doesn't even lie with Blu-ray although some may argue that society wasn't ready for an upgrade in movie watching yet (C'mon the Wii doesn't even play DVD's). It could be possible that part of the blame for Blu-ray's lack of appeal has to do with the small installed base of the Playstation 3."
