no **** sherlock...

Of course standard DVD will be on top when you can buy a freaking DVD player at a Walgreens drugstores for $15. I also wouldn't say noone is buying it. I had to go to 3 or 4 stores just to find a PS3 2 weeks ago. The reason the store clerks gave for the sell outs...Blu-Ray won.

well, there is no longer a war between formats, but between companies selling blu ray players

So I don't think they gonna raise the prices, cause there is still competition

I think I will go this route once I see the ASUS board and a few more blu-ray rom drives show up from other manufactures.

It swung over to BD not too long ago. Porn industry has little impact these days. It was a big deal in the VHS/Beta days, but thanks to the internet, it makes little difference today.

I think Blu-ray is overhyped and the only reason they had an edge on HD-DVD is because Blu-ray is a little more "futureproof" so-to-speak due to the higher capacity and better sound formats. I have a Blu-ray player and 26 movies. Out of the 26 movies only 8 of them look great. The other ones look just a LITTLE bit better than a standard DVD, and I'm watching these on a 56" TV. 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!!!

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

Went by my local big electronics retailer this weekend. The Blu-Ray movies cost a couple dollars, to twice as much as their dvd counterparts. The cost difference in players was $400+ (Blu-ray) to $50 (upsampling dvd).

What I found really funny is the prices of hd-dvd's have not dropped in the slightest.

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.

profile 1.3? i think you mean 2.0 since there's no 1.3. profile 2.0 blu-ray disc run just fine on 1.1 or 1.2 players. only that you can't access them. you can see the movie, that what counts the most.

When you buy a $400 player, you expect to get all the bells and whistles. Seeing the movie may matter the most, but loosing the additional functionality at that price really blows.
