Nice, tho I Dont get why blu-ray discs hold thier prce so much, old ones are still exspensive.

The price needs to come down by a lot more to persuade the mass market . It probably won't happen and the format will remain a niche - if it continues at all.

Blu Ray is the future.

Its a new technology and wil take some time before prices fall, but saying that discs have dropped a lot since its release.

I guess you don't remember when DVDs were £30 each when they first came out? Took years before they fell to the sort of prices they are today.

But also with a name like Cheapskate, I'm not surprised your sceptical.

The PS3 is also helping greatly and now HD DVD is no more it can only get better.

I still don't get why people don't understand how new formats work in the marketplace.

DVDs cost £20 when they first came out and it was a few years before they dropped. My first (2nd gen) DVD player cost £600 and it didn't even have DTS!

It's going to take at least a year or 2 before Blu-Ray takes off properly, plus DVD only ever had to deal with the stupidity that was divx (no not the video codec) whereas Blu-Ray had to compete with HD-DVD for at least the first year.

Nowadays people expect everything for peanuts whether it's a new format or new technology.

These are the same films Amazon have on 3 for 2, so the Amazon deal works out cheaper! I think someone said they got 3 for £22.

You haven't a clue really.

"I think [Blu-ray] has 5 years left, I certainly wouldn't give it 10," said Andy Griffiths, Samsung UK's consumer electronics director

I'm old enough to remember the launch of DVD but only fools paid £30 retail.

DVDs found a mass market when the price/benefit equation was sufficiently weighted in DVDs' favour to prompt the migration from VHS. That is not gonna happen with Blu-ray

In the U.S. & Canada. It took 2 years for sales to be ten times the launch year total and 6 years to be 100 times launch numbers.

http://www.dvdinformation.com/news/press/CES2008yearEnd.htm

Blu-ray ain't gonna come close to those sorts of figures before non-disc media offers the price/benefits to encourage the migration away from discs.

Thus this ain't much of a bargain and Blu has had it unless the price drops pretty quick.
