Gizmodo - "The downward trajectory of Blu-ray player prices matches DVD almost to the dollar-actually, Blu-ray's cheaper. And that's not considering inflation, or that the best players do a whole lot more than Blu-ray."
everyone should get one if they haven't already
i will post the revenue as soon as it comes out from hidefdigest :)
I am starting to see more studios offer up the blu/dvd/digital bundle for just a couple $$ more than the dvd only. In fact, I have picked up: UP, Half blood prince, Ice Age 3 all for $19 at launch and they all have the blu/dvd/dig copy. If more movies come out like this then it makes it so much easier for me. The kids can play the dvd in their room while I watch the blu on the main tv. Now if that can make the dig copy work on psp.... I think sony blu movies have their dig copy that can be xfrd to the psp directly by plugging the psp into the ps3. I have a few dig copies I want to play on my zune but alas...MS did not make the zune comp with digital copy (go figure). I am waiting till after xmas to pick up a stand alone blu player (samsung 1600).
right because $29.99 for a blu-ray is a lot cheaper than the $15.99 for a dvd. Not that I pay for either one. But whenever I go to target or wal-mart I feel bad for the schmucks payin out the A** for to watch a movie.
I'm so glad you feel bad for me and my ample disposable income. I guess I should have never gone to college so I can have a great job and a lot of money to afford the better things in life. Oh and I have NEVER paid $29.99 for a blu-ray. More like $17 - $22 tops. I feel bad for your lack of ability to shop around for the best deals.
...but I didn't realize it was THAT close! Blu-rays are great. They scratch less, they hold more data, and of course there's the benefit of HD video.
What are you talking about evrfighter? Most new releases that come out these days are cheaper on Blu-Ray than they are on DVD! I got Inglorious Basterds, The Hangover, and Public Enemies on Blu-Ray and they were all cheaper than the DVD versions. It's very easy to find priced-to-move Blu-Rays these days. It's a beautiful thing.
A lot of BD are bellow $20 nowadays. I got STAR TREK (Digital Copy) 2 BDs and 1 DVD for $20. The quality is amazing, BDs are the way to go.
Blu-Ray Movies are AWESOME, That's it
Anyone that wants all media to be downloadable are blind to the benefits and quality of blu-ray. even compared to a standard DVD. the blu-ray disc stands up to wear and tear better.
If I didn't already have a PS3 with a Blu-ray player I would have gotting a Blu-ray player for christmas this year.
I would buy blu-rays if they were cheaper, I can pick up most films I want far cheaper on dvd. The quality is obviously better on blu-ray but not so much that I would pay twice the price. I'm going by what the prices are like in the uk btw.
For the disagrees, take a look at http://hmv.com/hmvweb/home....
NEVER buy anything from HMV. Asda, Morrisons, Sainsburys all sell cheaper........and then there are Amazon, Play etc etc............
Yes, but a lot of spur on the moment sales I make are when I'm physically shopping. I buy certain things online, but most of my film collection is from just buying in town. HMV was just an example, dvds are a lot cheaper pretty much on the whole. The fact is that blu-rays are more expensive.
They may be up to 50% more expensive (I mainly shop at DVD.co.uk or amazon.co.uk), but think of the quality upgrade, both audio and visual. It is the same price I paid for DVDs just a year ago (but obviously they have become even cheaper with the rise of Blu-rays).
that how u now blueray ben cheap think about it people all they did just jack the price up first just to see how it will do what u think people...
Blu Rays are extremely cheap in the stores I frequent. They are often a few dollars less then DVD, which surprised me to no end given their superior quality.
"I guess I should have never gone to college so I can have a great job and a lot of money to afford the better things in life. Oh and I have NEVER paid $29.99 for a blu-ray. More like $17 - $22 tops. I feel bad for your lack of ability to shop around for the best deals." lol paying for a blu-ray or dvd has never crossed my mind. when it comes to me and you, I can tell you I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt, my blu-ray collection stored in my hard drive is probably 10-20x more than you have right now. I get the best deals. even if you find blu-rays for $1.99 I STILL get the best deal lol. I'm glad you went to college so you could brag on a game forum how you can afford everything. I can also, except the difference between me and you. The hundreds/thousands of dollars I've saved go to bigger, better things. Blu-ray is ancient tech compared to hard drives and usb drives. The technology world will adapt to fully maximize the cheaper, better, more durable technology. Sony understood this with PSP Go but failed to realize what digital distribution is all about. Go to steam's site right now and you'll understand why the Go failed. PC PC gaming has proved this already.
You're basically saying you pirate everything and piracy is ok with you. Also, the reason the PSP GO failed is pricing, not digital distribution
The price of the players might be comparatively cheap, but blu ray movies are still expensive as F*** in aus
