Blu Ray Format and Ps3 Future

Well im sure you were the same as me and unsure of the ps3 and blu rays future in the last 5 months

But since the start of the year hd-dvd collapsed mainly due to warner flying the nest - which killed hd-dvd even though they were holding there own

So toshiba will be stopping making hd-dvd players


Ps3 sold 8 (edited) million units last year but i can see it selling at least 5 million ps3 a month and i think only because of blu ray not due to its games

But the question is will you be more likely to buy a ps3 purely on this fact that blu ray won ?? Because im sure thinking about it

5 million a month?

Blue ray DVDs are to expensive at the moment, I doubt we will see anything happen in that market for the next 6months to a year.

you can pick up a lot some good DVDs for about £2-3 were Blueray on average is about £12-15:|

yeah they sold 8million world wide after god know how long. If MS decide to make a blue ray add on as well, might affect there sale a bit more.

I dont know one person who watches films in Blue ray. Mabye in a year or so when blue rays become about £7-8, you could see the sales of the PS3 increase, or when GT5/MGS come out.

I know people that have bought a ps3 just becuse blu ray has won,
Personally i would wait, remember when DVD first came out and dvd player were around £150,now you can pick one up for about £15.
Or if in 2009 there is nothing i want to play on the 360 in 2009 ill get a ps3 then, or ill get one if there is another price cut

Price cut due 29th april, when GTA4 is out, according to previous reports by dandoc.

Although the PS3 is without a doubt the BR player to go for and it is semi tempting, I too will hold out until the player prices are more in line with DVD pricing.

Just for mockery sake : New DVD release, street price £10-20. New DVD PLAYER, street price £20 or less....

Makes you think eh?

Why not wait until 2015 to buy one, Tesco's will be doing them on BOGOF. :thinking:

Anyway dandoc. You hated the ps3, then you wanted one, then you hated it again, now you want one again?

You my friend are a hypocrite.

Or have I always called you one anyway?
#12
5 million PS3's a month?, thats some jump from under 750K a month for the past 18 months or so.

Perhaps you should re-think that?
#13
so now the war is over do you think we will see the new transformers movie on blu-ray, wanted it for so long but ive got a ps3 so wasnt buying a hd dvd player for 1 film
#14
Well judging by worldwide sales, the PS3 outsold the Xbox last year, but only by about one million over the year, so I don't think it will begin shifting 5 million units a month! There will probably be an increase in sales though, although I expect a bigger increase in sales when MGS4 and Gran Turismo 4 come out, as I know that some of my friends are waiting for these games to come out before they buy their PS3s so there could be quite a few others doing the same.

Correct :thumbsup:.....i'm still using the PC for FPS & the Wii for the fun!

In 6 months time metal gear & GT4 should have turned the tide :thumbsup:

lol, the ps3 out sold the 360 in one, maybe two months of last year at least i think it did from what ive heard.

The PS3 is now getting its sales from people wanting a blu-ray player. Not because its a good games console (The people who think it is already have one).

Microsoft can counter this by offering a bluray addon.
#17
I have all 3 consoles and think the PS3 is the better of them all, games are starting to get better and I can't see MS offering a blu ray add-on
#18
I have been after a PS3 for a while, and one of the reasons is due to the Blu-Ray player in it, but also it is going to be a main gaming machine for me, as me and my hubby dont really watch a lot of DVD's anyway

its around that time thats what im holding out for :thumbsup:

And i think ps3 sales will increase a lot in the next month of so
Remember ps3 has sold 9 million on the basis of that its a ps3 but now that consumers are assured that blu ray is the future it will tempt and put them at ease - ergo more peeps will be buying a ps3

5 million a month is the most unrealistic prediction I'v ever heard. 8 million in almost a year, about a quater at christmas when sales peaked to 5 million = 150% more than crimbo every single month? Just because there is less competition in high def media? Honestly I think there may be a short term hike but the ps3 is never going to make a jump as amazing as that - other manufacturers will now be starting to mass produce bluray players which should bring the price down fairly quickly if dvd player sales trends are any indication.
