Default Post your predictions.

How long until Blue-Ray is gone due to the outrageously awesome HD-DVD player prices?

I think by next fall.

I think both will fade to oblivion. The same happend to HDCD, SACD and DVD-A... All the clueless Joe six packs will kill both formats.

I think the format war will continue. I think the holidays will see some low priced Blu-Ray players too. So its back to which one to pick.

I would be amazed if any format took over DVD sales in the next 5 years.

Nielson #'s are cute. What they don't show is the pie is a whole bunch of nothing. HDM is 1% of the disc sales market. Studios are not looking at Nielson for decisions right now, they are looking at attach rates.

PS3 gave BD a running start, but it is not sustaining. They need to sell standalones. The problem is, their standalones are overpriced crap.
