blu-ray missed it's chance to really hit primetime, http://www.pocket-lint.co.uk/n...y-5-years-left.phtml
And, between the improvement in quality, interactivity vs price and drm, blu-ray is taking it's sweet time to gain real market acceptance http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2...-home-video-market/1
With the down turn with many economies, there are few interested in a $200+ player for movies that cost $10 more than their regular counterparts. If the studios really wanted blu-ray to take off, they would remove the premium.
Otherwise, a significant portion of the population simply doesn't notice or care about the difference from dvd to blu-ray. My wife shown the same movie in both, either didn't care or didn't notice. I've had the same story reinforced when inquiring about other wives thoughts.
If blu-ray manages to get to 50% of the market within the next two years, I'll be amazed.
