6M Blu-ray Players May Be No Sure Thing

As the economic storm clouds grow darker, consumer electronics manufacturers are looking at a handful of growth categories - including Blu-ray Disc players - to hedge the industry's bets, but one major retailer told TWICE that he fears the category is still not the slam-dunk some perceive it to be.

The story is too old to be commented.

Is doing fine for a new format, all new formats take time usually.

The economic state is the only thing hurting it.

People love HighDefinition. (lol)

Of course it is doing fine, but it has been at least a week since the last "Blu-ray in trouble" it was due.

I agree with both of you. I just wonder how long it will be around before this BS stops.

but I only buy a select few movies on BD. I have a DVD collection of over 300 movies and I am not replacing them for BD because there is no need to. There are a few i did replace with BD, but even when I buy new movies if it is a movie i don't need 1080p for (like a goofy comedy or something) i would rather spend less than $10 for it on DVD. Any action movie, I get BD. So for people like me adoption rate for BD could be a snails pace for quite a while...

Plus, I buy all my BD on amazon and eBay, so they are almost the same price as DVDs.

Notice how the article fails to mention the 21+million PS3 owners.
