Blu-ray to rule by 2011

Thumb Down

Price comparison

The reality is (prices taken from Play.com):

DVD Vantage Point £9.99

DVD Vantage Point 2 disc £14.99

Blu Ray Vantage Point £17.99

Trouble is in 3 months we'll see the top two at £3.99 and £5.99 maybe, but the Blu Ray will still be £17.99, although maybe in a 3 for 2 offer so it will be down to £13 ish.

Another example, Torchwood season 1 DVD's, £17.99, Blu Ray is £41.99. Come on!!!!!

Errrrm, DVD it is. I've got a Blu Ray player and a 1080p upscaling multi region DVD, until Blu Ray titles track the DVD prices (e.g £17.99 drops to £8.99 in 6 months) then they'll not sell well.

Best bargain I got was the Spiderman trilogy Blu Rays for £17.98, that's good.

All the extra features on Blu Ray are amazing, but I (like most people I know) generally just watch the film. I WILL pay the extra £1-£2 for a 2 disc version of a DVD just incase, but not multiply the price by 2-3 times for a Blu Ray release!

Tut tut

They should have shot their teachers and some fellow students as they would have got less jail time.

WTF is going on with the world. Yes, this could lead to bigger more serious crimes one day, but they havent just run over a small child or pulled the trigger on some poor teacher trying to get them a higher grade.
