Default Re: Blu-ray prices go up following HD DVD's death

I actually stopped buying Blu-rays and started going back to Blockbuster's 4 for 20 dollars deal on pre-viewed DVDs. Sorry, but spending
20-30 bucks on 1 movie is a little ridiculous. This is just my opinion so if I offend anyone who swears by the glory of Blu-ray then....YOU MUST BE A REEOCHHH BEEEOCH!!!

Aside from the capacity being better on blu-ray, HD-DVD was clearly a better format due to blu-ray having difficulties with 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 versions of blu-ray where some 1.1 players couldn't update to 1.2 or 1.3. 1.3 requires internet access as one of the features which hd-dvd had implemented at the start.
